You're going to need MORE money in the future, NOT LESS.

Taking your social security check at age 62 is a mistake UNLESS you are in poor health.

Typical benefits are about: $1,348 per month at 62; $2,364 per month at age 70.

That's $1,016 less you'd receive every month by taking it at 62.

To make up that difference would require $406,400 cash on hand at a guaranteed rate of 3% to generate $1,016 per month income.

Or another way to look at this, you'd have to save $50,800 per year EVERY year for the 8 years from age 62 to 70 to have $406,400 cash on hand and then you still have to safely be able to earn 3% on your money to replace the lost income.

I'll say it again: 

You're going to need MORE money in the future, NOT LESS.
