Ask a Social Security Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to help
How are you today?
You can start your social security retirement at any time once you reach the age of 62
So, you can take your retirement now
hi megan, thankyou for the response, my question is I already receive soc. sec. retirement started at 62, can i claim a hardshgip because i had to take early retirement to be the primary care giver for mom? Last brother doing it died suddenly. can i get back pay for the difference in the early rtetirement and full retirement?
Thank you for that information. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a "hardship retirement" and there's no way to get your benefit increased
Unless you suspend your application and decide not to draw
can i suspend now and draw at65? my birthday is XXXXX January.
It won't increase your benefits by much- just by 5/9 of 1% a month
less than 1%
If you want to get your full retirement, you can withdraw your application and pay back what you had been given and then draw once you reach full retirement age.
I also am the last one living in my family, mother and two brothers passed inthe the last 3 years, soc sec will not pay any death benefits to me even though there are no other living parents or children/ how can that be?
the only ones that can receive death benefits are parents, spouses, or children
I;m the last living chid of mothers and they won.t pay the insignificant 255 dollars, i dont get it.
If your mother passes away, you will get the benefit if there is no surviving spouse
thanks megan for the time I;ll follow up about mom haven,t receiuved anything yetn and now i,ll try food stamps, good job lady, thanks again
If you would, please rate me positive so that I may receive credit for assisting you today
