What would you like to do?
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

Thanks for the feedback!
Payment for retirement begins at 62 (at a reduced level), but payment for disability can be at any age.
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.
It depends on your country of residence and the laws that apply inthat country.
typically you can start when you hit 62, but it is a lesser amount than if you wait longer, say 65 or 70.
Yes, under the current laws anyone who has accumulated 40 work credits may retire at age 62, but you will only receive approximately 75% of the benefit you would be entitled t…o if you filed at full retirement age. Your year of birth is the determining factor in when SSA considers you to be full retirement age. For people born between 1943 and 1954, the age is 66.
Over 70 years

You can draw a reduced Social Security benefit starting between age 62 and your full retirement age. Someone born in 1953 has a full retirement age 66. You should become fami…liar with the Social Security website given in the related link.
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.
it is now 2017 and If you were born in 1963, you are now 54. In theUK you are of working age and provided you qualify, you could claimjobseekes allowance if you are out of wor…k or ESA if you are sickup to your retirement age. At the moment your state retirement agewould be 67.
