    Are there any advantages/disadvantages in the month you start claiming your SS benefits?

    I have 3 years before I start pulling, but the calculation I ran showed that if you wait to start pulling to max out vs pulling at 62 - you will be at least 80 before they even out - in other words - give me my money as soon as I'm eligible -- oh, the original question was month, never mind
