Q. Is there any benefit to postponing my retirement pension when I turn age 62?

Q. I want to defer my retirement and get out at 50/20. It’s my understanding that if I wait until 60 to claim my retirement, I will retire with full benefits as if I had waited until the minimum retirement age of 56 years and 8 months. Is this true?
