Will early retirement hurt my benefits from Social Security? ...

I'll retire early at 52. I didn't plan to take Social Security until I should age 70. Will the benefit benefit be smaller due to retirement early? Or how will it grow between now and then?

Still working Still working still not working on it.

Congratulations on your early retirement.

It is also important to consider these two important questions, especially when it comes to retirements.

When you retire young, there can be some potential trade-offs you need to make, said Michael Cohen, a consultant for Certainty Retirement Advisors in Belvidere.

He said the biggest concern is primarily healthcare.

Medicare does not start on when you start 65 years of age, so you will be responsible for health care if you don't have other circumstances, he said.

Lets go about the implementation of Social Security now.

The year you can collect is the year you're living in a new time, at the time the new age is the new age of 62. You are full-term retirement age, at Social Security, is the age of 67 and the longest you can't collect is the age of 70.

Don't make the mistake of being past 70 as a person, so he said, a mischievous waiter don't benefit you.

Check the social security report to see what's your average salary.

It will show the amount that you want to receive at age 67 or your full retirement age, and also the estimated benefits at age 62 and 70.

If you wait until the age of 70, youll earn an average of 8% a year on your own wage, for the year you wait. So, you will increase the monthly benefits by two4% by waiting until the age of 70, Cohen said.

Now we look at how early retirement approaches play.

By looking back on your job history, you find out how much benefit you get from your benefit.

He said he has a complicated mathematical formula that the government uses to determine what your claim amounts or full-retirement age benefit will be.

You can look for your statement, which includes estimated benefits and work history, as long as you have a valid Social Security e-mail address. The contact page is on www.SSA.gov and start in an online account.

He said that the numbers you found on your statement are estimates and subject to change.

And due to the fact that you aren't earning between 52 and when you collect your estimated Social Security benefit, you likely will end up earning as much as you could, Cohen said. Because you do not earn as much from your estimates, you probably still lose their wages until age 62, 67 or 70 as well as the previous year.

You are no longer working at the age of 52, so you change everything if you stop working at the age of 52. You don't contribute to the Social Security.

Cohens said that it will be tough to decide what your benefit will be at age 67 or 70 today for many reasons.

He said that your retirement time is a big factor, but in addition to the social security changes, he said.

It is clear to you that the estimated income tax collected is inexact, to a fact, your claim says. The estimates of your benefit are based on current laws and are considered "just a bill" for Congress. The law has changed the law in the past and can make such a bill anytime, due to the fact that the payroll taxes collected will only be sufficient to pay just about 79 percent of those scheduled benefits.

What's this mean for your Social Security benefit?

He said, It means that you should expect changes before and when you're thinking about collecting.

Cohen said that it's unlikely that the government would slash benefits across the nation by 21 %, but with other action more likely.

Apparently, it was 65, then went to 60 and now, now, if anyone born in 1960 or so is full retirement age 67, he said.

This could significantly increase the payroll tax, which currently stands at 6,2% for W-2 employees and 12.4% for self-employed.

He said that it might reduce the tax deductions of the 8% basic interest to a lesser level or eliminate the cost of living per year.

One must act because Social Security won't go anywhere, he said. "These factors make determining your future benefit very difficult if there is a large gap of likely 18 years between retirement and when you start collecting."
