Social Security is the best annuity around! Your benefits will cover your expected lifespan -- and then some. Here are the basic numbers: You can start collecting benefits at age 62, but you will lose 25 percent of your benefits -- forever. Full retirement benefits start .at age 66 for those born between 1943 and 1954; for younger folk, the retirement age creeps up toward 67. You get the best deal if you can wait: potential benefits rise by 8 percent a year for every year from age 66 until you are 70. Another reason to delay benefits is to ensure the highest possible payment to a spouse. A spouse can collect 50 percent of the working spouse's benefits. If both worked, then each usually claims his or her own benefits while they are both living. Once widowed, though, the surviving spouse is entitled to 100 percent of the higher-earnings benefits. A divorced spouse is entitled to the same deal, as long as the marriage lasted 10 years. What's the best deal for your needs? We'll help you figure the numbers at SSi Safeway sale not expected to affect Quincy store Laura Beaton Staff Writer Safeway, which has stores in Quincy and Susanville, could soon be changing hands. Several national media outlets last week reported that private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management would acquire Safeway Inc. for about $9.4 billion. The deal would combine Safeway with Cerberus' Albertsons chain. According to reports, the deal is not final. But if it goes through, Cerberus isn't expected to close any Safeway stores. However, Cerberus already owns several grocery store chains on the West Coast. According to a story in the Baltimore Sun, Cerberus could be forced to spin off several Safeway stores in California to avoid antitrust issues. Word of Safeway's potential sale has been circulating through Plumas and Lassen counties for weeks. The store's local employees haven't been able to offer any insight about the deal. At the Quincy Safeway, relief store manager Ricardo Grijalva said, "I personally can't comment. I don't know what's happening, except for what is printed." He said all he knows is what Safeway CEO Robert Edwards has sent out in memos. Edwards has been mum with the national media. Edwards and Cerberus representatives declined to comment for stories in the national media last week. Edwards said in February he would update investors and analysts on the progress of any negotiations at the "appropriate time." Pleasanton-based Safeway is the No. 2 traditional grocery chain in the nation, behind Kroger. Industry watchers have said that Safeway can't compete with discount stores like Wal-Mart, Target and even dollar stores. Those stores can afford to sell some consumables at a loss, or near loss, in exchange for getting hordes ' of customers through the door. Safeway also can't compete in the high-end and specialty markets, where it. faces behemoths such as Costco and Whole Foods for competition. According to reports, a merger would transform Safeway into a neighborhood grocer that more closely resembles Trader Joe's.

When it comes to the number of retirement accounts you have, the saying "more is better" is not necessarily true.
