I signed up for social security at age 62, but was denied because

Resolved Question:

I signed up for social security at age 62, but was denied because of my corporate earnings.
I have waited until age 66 to receive my full benifit. In April of 2013 I received 15,000 from social security saying they should have paid me that amount for 2011 since they had
decided to not count corporate earnings in 2011. But somehow waited 2 years to let me know that. I appealed, and they say they agree with me, and wanted their money back. So I sent it. But no one at social security wants to let me know what amount I will receive in Oct. at age 66. One person says, if I did not receive any money in those years I will receive full retirement. Another says I will only get the amount I would have gotten at age 62. What should I receive??

MyVirtualCPA :

I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.

MyVirtualCPA :

We are not affiliated with social security, so I can't give you a dollar total that you will receive at full retirement age.

MyVirtualCPA :

However, I can tell you that you will receive your full retirement benefit, if your first month of benefits is when you are 66 years old.

MyVirtualCPA :

You will NOT be given the amount you would have drawn at age 62

MyVirtualCPA :

You will be given the full amount, because effectively you have not taken benefits

Customer:

The ss office had me send in a request for withdrawal of application, but

Customer:

said It probably would not helpm

MyVirtualCPA :

Well effectively you did not have benefits for those years (age 62-66) correct?

Customer:

yes

MyVirtualCPA :

Then you will receive your full benefit at age 66. I don't see the problem

Customer:

I just believe that they have looked at my income and have decided I don't need the money. In fact one of their agents told me that.

MyVirtualCPA :

Well your income has nothing to do with your social security benefit

MyVirtualCPA :

And if one of the agents told you that, I would have gotten their name and reported them to a supervisor

Customer:

that what I told her. I do have her name. I need to know what the real amount

Customer:

will be in time to request a hearing if I need to, but no one will tell me that.

MyVirtualCPA :

I'm sorry, I can't give you a dollar amount either - but I can say that if you did not receive benefits from age 62 forward, you will get your full amount

Customer:

Can you tell me what office or who I can contact to get this answer?

MyVirtualCPA :

You could go up to your local social security office, or call the national hotline at 1-800-772-1213

Customer:

Thank you

MyVirtualCPA :

You're welcome. I'm sorry I don't have a more definitive answer...but, we don't have access to your personal information

MyVirtualCPA :

Do you have any further questions today?

Customer:

Not right now.

MyVirtualCPA :

okay, glad I could be of assistance. If you would, please rate my response "excellent" so that I may receive credit for assisting you today. You can come back to this page and ask follow up questions if the need arisese
