Question: When should I start taking Social Security? I turn 62 next week and I’m not sure if I should take them sooner or later. I’ll probably work till I’m at least 70 if my health holds out.

You can start by going to www.ssa.gov, setting up an account and obtaining a report from Social Security of what your specific benefits will be at the various ages you can take them.
