I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to provide you with excellent service, and help you better understand your options.
How are you today?
In order to qualify for social security, you will need to have 40 quarters of credit for social security
That is 10 years of work activity
You can certainly file your back taxes and get credit for social security even if you are over the age of 65
Is there anything else that I can assist you with today?
The answer to your question is that you need 10 years of credits (40 quarters) to qualify for social security, and you can earn these credits at any age.
