The Swiss National Bank is set to look past a mild near-term rise in inflation at home as well as a slightly weaker franc and stick firmly to its ultra-expansive monetary policy on Thursday, according to a Reuters poll of economists. No one expects the SNB to alter rates during the forecast horizon, which runs to the first quarter of 2023, with the European Central Bank's cautious approach leaving the Swiss with little room for manoeuvre. The ECB this month said it would trim its emergency bond purchases, but this has been followed by only a tiny weakening in the franc against the euro.

When I make plans for my retirement, I always operate under the assumption that I'll claim Social Security benefits at 62. When I estimate what Social Security will do for me as a senior, I assume I'll start my checks at 62 for one simple reason: Because that's the earliest age they become available. Since claiming Social Security at 62 instead of starting benefits later means taking a significant hit to benefits, I don't want to overestimate how much money I'll get.
