In recent columns I've been making the case for why it pays for most people to consider delaying taking Social Security rather than at the first opportunity, age 62.

Last week's column on Social Security sparked a number of comments. Briefly, rather than take Social Security early at age 62, I argued for a strategy of filing for Social Security benefits later, tapping into retirement savings and working at least part-time instead. I'd like to address some of the challenges to this perspective.

QI am 59 and wish to retire in three years. To have enough retirement income, I could take Social Security early at 62, or withdraw $2,000 a month from my retirement accounts. Which is the better option?

Q I am 62. My husband is 63. We hired a respected fee-based certified financial planner to update our financial plan as we head into retirement. We have a projected secure stream of income aside from our 401(k) and may or may not need to draw down on our retirement funds ever, or at least not for five or six years.
