If you have accumulated enough work credits (typically 40) the earliest you can collect Social Security retirement benefits is 62. At that age, your monthly payment would be a…bout 75% of the amount you would receive by waiting to retire at SSA's full retirement age. Full retirement age: Born before 1943...................65Born between 1943-1954........66Born in 1955.........................66 + 2 monthsBorn in 1956.........................66 + 4 monthsBorn in 1957.........................66 + 6 monthsBorn in 1958.........................66 + 8 monthsBorn in 1959.........................66 + 10 monthsBorn in 1960 or later...............67 You can receive Social Security disability benefits at any age if you have sufficient work credits (on your own or a spouse's work record, or on a parent's work record if disabled before age 22) and SSA determines your condition prevents you from engaging in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA).

No. You can collect both as long as you qualify for each of them. They're separate programs.
Do you have to contribute to Social Security if you collect Social Security benefits and work full time?
Yes as long as you are still living and have any type of earned income you are required to contribute your social security and medicare taxes on the income that you work for.
No. Social Security benefits are non-transferable, so they can't be garnished, attached or levied by most creditors. Only the federal government can garnish Social Security ch…ecks, and only for limited purposes, like payment of back taxes, alimony, and child support, debt to other federal agencies, and some victim compensation awards. Generally, they withhold only a portion of the benefit to help satisfy these obligations (e.g., maximum of 15% for past due taxes).

Whether or not a woman can collect on her husbands social security depends on several factors. First, she has to be old enough or disabled. Second, she has to have been marrie…d long enough. Then, she must be widowed or divorced. Other rules may apply. As with everything involving the government, exceptions exist. You will need to see someone at the social security office. If you try to contact someone by phone, you will get a recorded message that someone will get back to you. One person has been waiting 20 years for his call to be returned. You can try the internet. You may or may not get satisfaction. If you visit a social security office, you will be able to get an appointment with a live human being.
People over 65 get free money from the government I would humbly point out that like all taxpayers, I have been paying 6.2% of my earnings into this program for years, so t…hat I will get "free money" in the future. Assuming they do not run out of money, which, at present rates, they will in a few years. Most expensive "free" thing I have had lately. Social Security pays for the elderly , the retired , or handicap. The money is received from everyone paying taxes. It can be extremely helpful if one gets into an accident or if a spouse has deceased.
