"Unearned income", from investments, does not count against you SS limits, so perhaps you can derive some additional from there. I'd take the retirement at 62 (I did). It may not be there to take, if you wait. That being said, if you are earning a high income, like what you do, and are in excellent health, keep working.

Nope, she's younger 56, and I cannot enter into any corporate agreement with a non-attorney. It's the earned income that predisposes me to wait.
