Frequently Asked Questions
Analysts recommend a retirement income of 80% of your final employment income. The average retirement household income is about $48,000 before taxes and spends about $46,000 per year. The average social security income in retirement is about $40,000 per year.

You can begin taking social security benefits as early as age 62 (or earlier if you’re the survivor of another social security claimant, or on disability). You can wait until as late as age 70. You only get maximum social security payments if you wait until full retirement age (FRA). FRA varies between age 66 and 67 for people born after 1954. If you begin taking benefits at age 62 your payments will be smaller than if you waited until FRA.
