When to start collecting Social Security benefits. Chapter 2.

You have three main options:

  • Start collecting early
  • Start collecting at full retirement age
  • Start collecting after full retirement age

Let’s discuss the first one: start collecting early?
You can start collecting between age 62 and full retirement age and receive reduced benefits. The reduction can be up to 30{030251e622a83165372097b752b1e1477acc3e16319689a4bdeb1497eb0fac93} depending on your age.
 
The Pros:
You can potentially collect over a longer period of time depending on longevity.
The Cons:
You reduce your monthly benefit for life and the life of your surviving spouse.
