The earliest you can collect Social Security retirement benefits is age 62. You would be entitled to approximately 75% of the amount you would receive if you waited until full retirement age (66) to retire. This amount will not increase when you reach full retirement age, so there is a penalty for filing early.

The SSA does not make partial payments except when making adjustments to offset windfalls, other government pension checks, or excessive early retirement earnings. If you file for retirement benefits at age 62, they will pay the full monthly amount to which you're entitled.
