Thinking About Retirement? Consider Working a Little Longer
The New York Times , Jeff Sommer , June 1st, 2018
Interesting article about the effect of working a little longer and the amount available for income in retirement years. Also discussed is the positive effect of waiting until age 70 to receive Social Security benefits. Due to antiquated government assumptions relating to life expectancy and interest rates, you receive 8% tax deferred each year you wait. Put another way, by waiting from age 62 to age 70, the Social Security income would be doubled.
I never heard of this protection before. Could be an interesting dynamic with a young person who makes a mistake picking a college or ran into problems. Could take the fear of losing money out of the delicate family dynamic.
