The only consideration based upon the info that you provide is that for each year that you wait, your benefit will increase by approximately 5.5%. Two years is an 11% reduction in monthly payments. If you think you will need that in the future, then it may be better to wait.
Also, the breakeven for all actuarial ages is 77 years. So, if you believe you will live longer than 77 years, then you should wait to collect benefits for as long as possible.
