You can retire as early as age 62. However, your benefits would be reduced if you do not retire at your Full Retirement Age. To find out your Full Retirement Age, click on the link below:

For how much you would get, that you would be determined by Social Security Administration ("SSA") based on your earnings history, which I am not privy to—only SSA will have this information.
