what are the penalities if you receive it early?
You can not receive benefits before age 62. Your benefits will be about 25% less than they would be if you waited till full retirement age, which for most people is 67.
Early SS benefits do not begin until age 62. Do you have any disabilities or other health issues that might qualify you for social security disabilty benefits?
