Social Security will still offer 75% after it "goes broke". This will decline over time to ~69% where it will be in balance with inflows and still offer a better standard of living than that of today. It is very real.

A 5% return is reasonable, but not sufficient for me to delay taking it. I should be able to do better. The tax situation is a much stronger reason. It may be much better to draw down retirement accounts before taking it, but then again if you will be paying it anyway, minimizing income over your lifespan may be better. You should have some saving outside of them to reduce your draw on them.
