Social Security Planning

What if you claim your Social Security benefit at the earliest date? What if you waited until your full retirement age? What if you waited until the maximum age for delayed credits? Is there such a thing as claiming too early? What if your spouse claims at the earliest date and then dies? What happens to your survivor’s benefit?Calculator Screens
