Short Takes: Delaying CPP, Credit Card Mix-up, and more

I wrote only one post in the past two weeks, but I think it’s important:


Here are some short takes and some weekend reading:

Fred Vettese explains why delaying taking CPP until age 70 is the right choice for most people. I’m able to spend more in early retirement today because of my plan to delay taking CPP and OAS until I’m 70. But I’ve had little success explaining this to others.

Big Cajun Man found a way to get his daughter to pay off his credit card. He tells the story a little differently.

Preet Banerjee interviews Melissa Agnes about company crisis management.

Robb Engen at Boomer and Echo explains his mortgage renewal strategy.


  1. I am glad someone understood the nuances of that story!

  2. Good link from Fred Vettese. Only problem is that he mentions Figures 1 and 2 in his article, but I can't access them using the link provided. Without Figure 2, the article is loses much of its impact.

    1. @Anonymous: I just checked the Vettese article, and both figures were there. Perhaps something was wrong temporarily and it's been fixed?
