Hello Susan, welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would be happy to assist you today
Your benefit continues to increase year after year until you reach age 70.
This is independent of any COLA adjustments.
So, there is an incentive to not draw your benefit
Your benefits increase every month you delay until you reach the age of 70. That is when your benefits stop increasing
Your benefits are reduced by 5/9 of 1% for each month you draw before age 66
Then, once you reach age 66 they grow 8% per year and reach their maximum at age 70
I'm sorry that social security did not inform you of all this.
Please let me know if I can help you any further.
Please take a moment to rate me positive if I have been helpful, as this is how I receive credit for assisting you today
