Age 70 ➡️ It’s time to start claiming Social Security if you haven’t already. Delayed retirement credits stop accruing, so there is no longer a financial gain in holding off any longer.
Age 73 ➡️ This is when required minimum distributions. The Secure Act 2.0 raised the age again. Starting January 1, 2023, you may now wait until 73 as opposed to the previous age of 72. The age will increase again in 2033 to 75.
