Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

It depends on your full retirement age. If your full retirement age is 65 (you were born before 1942) than yes, you can do that. However if you were born in or after 1943, than your full retirement age is 66 and the answer would be no. You can apply and suspend your retirement benefits when you reach your full retirement age.
