Yep. Whether or not it makes sense to wait boils down to "just how long you expect to live." Also, the 8% adder, per year waited, erodes with inflation just as fast as the full retirement age (66 for me) amount. At least the inflation hit is slowed a bit by any COLAs that might be provided, not that that's a guaranteed thing.
