Yes. 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 wou…ld receive if you postponed retirement until full retirement age. People born in 1958 reach full retirement age at 66 + 8 months (eight months after your 66th birthday in 2024).
You will not need anything to retire at the age 62. Simply contact the Social Security office to sign up. You will need to speak with your employer if you have one to see abou…t their requirements.
Yes. If you retire at age 62, you can earn $1,180 per month ($14,160 per year) in wages and an unlimited amount of income from passive sources, like 401k, annuities, dividends…, non-government pensions, etc. The most you can earn in any year prior to reaching full retirement age (most likely 66) is $14,160. If you exceed the limit, the SSA will temporarily reduce your future benefits by $1.00 for every $2.00 earned over the cap. Social Security will withhold your benefit check beginning in January of the following year until the entire overage has been offset.
In my case starting to collect at 62 vice 65 meant reciveing an additional 42000 dollars before turning 65. If I had waited till 65 it would have taken about eleven and …a half years for the higher benifit to catch up to what I recived. I for one don't know how long I will live but if I get to 75 I am even.
The answer depends on your individual circumstances; however, if you begin drawing retirement benefits at age 62, your check will be approximately 75% of what you would receiv…e at full retirement age (most likely 66). This will be your base rate for the remainder of your retirement.
You can in two more years at age 65. Although it will change to age 67 for those born later.
The exact amount of your benefit is calculated based on the average of your 35 highest-earning years, which varies by individual. At age 62, you would receive 75% of the amoun…t that you would qualify to receive if you waited until your Full Retirement Age (66 if you were born between 1943 and 1954). The maximum retirement benefit is $2,346. This is based on a person retiring at age 66 in 2010, after making at least 35 years of maximum FICA contributions. At age 62, that person would receive $1,759.50 per month. The average monthly benefit for a retired worker is $1,164. At age 62, that benefit would be permanently reduced to $863.00 per month (not including periodic cost of living adjustments).
No, Social Security benefits continue unless you reenter the workforce and engage in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA), which translates to earning more than an average of $1…,000 per month for most disabilities or $1,640 per month for blindness. If you remain unemployed or employed below the level of SGA, disability benefits automatically convert to retirement benefits when you reach full retirement age (for people born before 1943, age 65; for people born between 1943 and 1954, age 66). Your benefit amount will usually remain the same, except for standard cost of living adjustments (COLA), but there will no longer be a limit on the amount of income you can earn.
no way govt is not even considering this proposal i actually suggest tht it be reduced by 2 years so that thse lazy assoles go home and sit in their house
If you retire at age 62 what amount of money can you earn working over your social security benefit?
The amount would be 14,160 before you would have to pay some of your SSB amount back to the SSA. For the earning test for the SSA the amount would be 14,160 before you will ha…ve pay some of your SSB back to the SSA.
Medicare eligibility starts at age 65 except for disabled Social Security beneficiaries. Medicaid is available for indigent adults who have dependent children or are disabled …as defined by Social Security regulations.
More information would really be necessary. In general, Medicare does not cover a non-eligible spouse. Purchasing a private inurance policy would be ad…visable. If you have special medical needs due to a disability, or if you turn 62, you may become eligible to apply for social security and Medicare under your husbands earnings if you don't qualify yourself.
You can't draw unemployment if you are permanently retiring. To qualify for those benefits you have to be ready, able, willing, and actively seeking full time employment, whic…h you don't do in retirement.
