My first ever Social Security payment was deposited in my checking account today. I was able to wait until I was 68 to start collecting which I know is an impossibility for many people.
We are hoping Hubby can wait until he turns 70 since his Federal employee pension starts this month and we have savings to draw on. The rationale is that then his will be higher than mine so if he dies first I will be able to collect a higher amount. Who knows if this is the right decision!
How have you, or are you thinking about, when to collect your Social Security?
