What age can you get social security born 1949?
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

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.
Born between 1943 and 1954 Full Retirement age (FRA) or Normal Retirement age (NRA) will be age 66. Go to the SSA.gov web site Social Security Benefits ONLINE
The earliest you can collect Social Security retirement benefits is age 62. You can collect Social Security disability benefits at age 30 if you are found disabled under Soc…ial Security guidelines and if you or a spouse have earned a sufficient number of work credits to qualify. At age 30, you need to have accumulated approximately 18 work credits, which is roughly the equivalent of 4.5 years of full-time work (half the number of years between age 21 and 30). Bear in mind Social Security payments are tied directly to the amount of money you've contributed to FICA during your working years, so a 30-year-old's check is likely to be low even if supplemented by SSI (Supplemental Security Income, a form of welfare). The minimum combined monthly payment may be as little as $675 per month (based $674 minimum SSI guarantee), but will vary by individual depending on your work record.
typically you can start when you hit 62, but it is a lesser amount than if you wait longer, say 65 or 70.

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.
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.
You can only draw Social Security benefits at age 55 if you are disabled.
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.
Payment for retirement begins at 62 (at a reduced level), but payment for disability can be at any age.
