Payment for retirement begins at 62 (at a reduced level), but payment for disability can be at any age.
You can take early retirement at age 62 if you have accumulated the required 40 work credits, but your benefit amount will be reduced to approximately 75% of what you would re…ceive if you postponed retirement until full retirement age (66 for people born between 1943 and 1954) or later. You can collect Social Security disability (SSDI) benefits at any age if you meet guidelines for both work credit eligibility and disability determination.
Unless you are awarded SS Disability or a similar award, the qualifying retirement age is graduated depending on when you were born. Contact your local SS office for further i…nformation.
Only if you qualify for SSDI (disability) or survivors' benefits under Social Security guidelines. A widow, widower, or qualifying ex-spouse may receive Social Security surviv…ors' benefits for retirement as early as age 60, or age 50 if disabled. The earliest a person can collect regular Social Security retirement benefits is age 62.
It depends on your country of residence and the laws that apply inthat country.
You can only draw Social Security benefits at age 55 if you are disabled.
Age, whether it be young or old, is irrelevant to your taxability. Social Security IS taxable income, although there is a calculation that makes much of it, if not all of it,… NOT actually taxed for many, depending on the amount of SS received AND other income sources (like interest, retirement, Pensions, etc)
You can file at 62, but for full social security it is now 67. I am born in 50 and just filed for mine to start in July. The social security web site is very good and you can …file online and finish with a phone interview. It is very easy to do. They base your start date on your birthdate and year

No the minimum age is 62
The minimum age you can claim Social Securityretirement benefits is 62, provided you have accrued the required40 credits which is the equivalent of 10 years of work. However,b…ecause age 62 is not the Full Retirement Age (FRA) for collectingretirement benefits, the amount you will be collecting will beabout 25 to 30 percent less than what you would collect if you waituntil your FRA, which can range between ages 66 and 67, dependingon your year of birth. Another effect of collecting Social Securityretirement prior to your FRA is that if you earn more than aspecific amount from working ($15,480 in 2014), your benefits willbe reduced. Deciding when to begin collecting your Social Securityretirement benefits is a decision that requires careful planning sobe sure to talk to an experienced financial advisor who can helpyou to fully assess your situation.
You can get Social Security before age 62 only if you are able to prove disability, which is SSI.
Wait until your full benefit age or later. Taking it before your full benefit age reduces your monthly check. Waiting several years after your full benefit age will increa…se your monthly check. Do not rely solely on Social Security to get you financially secure for the rest of your life. Invest in other means like an annuity to make sure that you have enough income to cover most anything that comes along, a newer car, health problems, rises in insurance premiums, rises in taxes, rises in the cost of living, etc.
