I'm looking through some text in a software application I work on. We give the user several options for when they want to calculate their social security. One of these options is "Retirement or 62 (latter of)".
It's a pretty minor issue, but I'm wondering if that is correct usage of the word latter. My understanding is that "latter of" means the second thing mentioned, whereas in our software it's like we're trying to use it to say "whichever is later".
My idea for changing it would be to just put "Retirement or 62 (later of)" which I think might be a bit clearer.
