Delay receiving Social Security to increase benefits

Many Americans think of retirement as something that automatically happens when they reach 65. However, some may be able to afford to retire sooner, while others may want work longer to save more. Regardless of when you want to retire, you should delay receiving Social Security benefits until 70 if you can.
 
"One of the best ways to ease into retirement is to live within your means and not rely on income from Social Security until age 70," according to Aaron Crowe from Bankrate.com.
