Answer You can't apply until 30 days after your 62nd, 66th or 70th birthdays if you wait until those ages to retire. Or you can apply anytime in between those birthdate…s if you choose. For example you could file for retirement in August of your 63rd year if you decided to retire then. WRONG You can apply within 4 months of when you are eligible for your first payment. Call 1-800-772-1213 or visit www.socialsecurity.gov for answers. Take information from anywhere else at your own risk!
You have to be someone that is at least 62.
No. Only earned income is counted toward the $14,160 annual cap and still allow you to receive full benefits between the ages of 62 and the year in which you achieve the full …retirement age of 66. The earning cap increases to $37,680 in January of the year you turn 66, and is lifted completely the month of your birthday. Afterward, there is no earned-income limit. Pension checks, 401k payouts, annuities, capital gains, and other investments are not counted toward the income limit at any time.
You can apply for Social Security benefits when you are 61 years, 9 months old or older, and you should apply no more than four months prior to when you want to begin receivin…g the benefits.
you should get social security benefits 3 weeks before your 62nd birthday
How many years before retirement do you have to have maximum social security withholding to get maximum social security benefits?
taxes on employers and employees.
I was getting partial retirement benefit since 2010, but I did not get paid in 2011 from Sept 2011 to December 2011, they paid me 769. in the month of Jan 2012 after that they… I am getting any payment since Feb 2012 till Dec. 2012, I am suppose to get 935. per month, they said I owed 10,560. if you calculate 935. time 11 month total will be 10,285. it means I paid 10,285. if you add one more month the total will be 11,220.00 they should start to pay me Feb 2013 935. per month, but they said I owed more money, and they will start payment from July 2013 I am not agree with this unfair business,please help me to resolve this problem ASAP.
There are at least two important factors involved in increasing your Social Security benefits. The first is, earn as much money as you possibly can because the benefits you re…ceive at retirement are tied directly to how much you paid into the system during your working years. The second is, vote. Be aware that some politicians want to dismantle Social Security and reduce benefits because of the cost. Don't cast a vote for anyone who wants to eliminate important financial safety nets, and don't sit home on election day thinking your one vote doesn't count, because it does. It's also a good idea to learn as much as you can about saving and investing some of your take-home pay so that you're not entirely dependent on Social Security benefits when you retire.
How can you apply for retirement benefits or something like Social Security by Hypo Venture Capital?
If you can't go to their office personally, you can apply online or through phone by calling Social Security at 1-800-772-1213.
You should expect to receive 70% of your income from social security, while the other 30% will be coming from a 401(k), IRA or another similar investment.
You can receive social security benfits at the age of 65 or if you were born after 1959, 67. This is said to possibly increase with the increasing number of older individuals …in our country and the dwindling number of younger individuals putting money into social security.
Social Security benefits change per person depending on particular things that happened in their life leading up to the current time. You will need to fill out an application …to apply and there are also online estimators to help you estimate the benefits you will be receiving.
Usually about 90 days.
