Hi, Looks like the other expert opted out.


If you're talking about Social Security here, that's correct. Once a person hits age 70 there are no more (8% per year between full retirement age of 66 and age 70) delayed retirement credits.


So not starting benefits at 70 is just leaving money on the table.
