So, this is because as you stated in your first post.- "If you retire before age 70, some of your delayed retirement credits will not be applied until the January after you start benefits.
" So, The Calculator was using 1.20 instead of 1.28

When I saw that quote on the SS site a red flag went up. My preference is to do the figuring myself, but in this case they make the rules. I appreciate the hint on how to see it implemented by using their calculator, even if I was slow on the uptake. Thanks

As Mister 69.5 took some time off for a cold one and to enjoy the scenery, because with 70 out front the rest of the way to the finish line, his view was never going to be better.
