You were born in 1953 can you draw Social Security at age 62?

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 to 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.
