Ask a Social Security Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good afternoon John,I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.1. Are you referring to an estimated retirement benefit letter?2. How old are you?Doug
Good afternoon John, I would expect that you would know if you were collecting your social security benefits now---because if you were, social security would send you either a check each month or deposit money to your bank account each month. If you have no yet filed for social security retirement, you should do that now---because after age 70, your benefit does not increase any more. At age 70 your benefit is as high as it will ever be. If you have not already done so, you should immediately apply for retirement benefits now, and ask for retroactive benefits back to age 70 and they will pay you the back pay to that month. If you have already applied, the letter is just telling you what you can expect to receive as soon as your payments begin. To apply, all you need to do is visit your local social security office or you can apply online at this link:
