Monthly Reflections from Katana Abbott

I'M 62!
SHOULD I TAKE MY
SOCIAL SECURITY NOW?
Retirement is a time when working is optional and retirement is affordable
 
Decisions, decisions! I turn 62 this month and will be eligible for early Social Security. I cannot believe it. I'm not alone with this question. Right now, there are 10,000 Baby Boomers turning 62 every single day. It’s important to look at all your options before you take your Social Security. These include reflecting on your health, your finances, and your lifestyle goals.  

What should you consider before taking your Social Security?

What are YOU planning
 for your future?
