10 Social Security claiming strategies
1. The basics
• You can collect retirement benefits as early as 62, but they will be reduced by 25% or more for the rest of your life.
• If you wait until your normal retirement age, currently 66, you can collect your full retirement benefit even if you continue to work.
• Or, if you delay collecting benefits beyond your normal retirement age, you can increase the amount by 8% per year up to age 70.
