At what age should I begin to collect Social Security?


This varies by person. The earliest you can qualify to begin collecting Social Security retirement benefits is age 62. The longer you wait, the larger your benefit will be. The highest monthly benefit you can earn occurs when you reach age 70. If you continue to work, it may make sense to delay taking Social Security. When you retire, you'll need to weigh the value of delaying Social Security against the cost of taking money out of your personal savings to make up the difference.
