5 Pros & Cons for Claiming Social Security Early

3. You’re Ready to Start Your Own Business

Starting your own business is no walk in the park, especially if you decide to do it later in life for whatever reason. Maybe you haven’t had the time before due to your regular job. Or perhaps you haven’t had the funds to support this decision before.

Whatever the case, if setting up shop during retirement is your plan, then claiming those benefits early could help your business get off the ground. If you’re using the funds to help boost your income during retirement by funnelling the money towards a new gig, why not go for it?

Perhaps it’s time to turn your hobby into a business and, in the long run, you could see more benefits from that than you would have by claiming Social Security later on in life.
