My husband is quitting his job . He has taken an early retirement from another company but does not have many leads on jobs. He is turning 59 on Oct 1. Can he draw his social security early?

Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

My apologies but the answer is 'no', he cannot draw early, at least not retirement benefits. The earliest he can retire would be at 62, and even then it would not be at full benefit. He would need to remain employed for at least 3 more years before being eligible. Here is a good link to the amount he would be eligible for once he is at 62, since he won't be eligible for the full benefit until he turns 67.
