"If you are receiving Social Security Retirement benefits and you change your mind about when they should start, you may be able to withdraw your Social Security claim and re-apply at a future date.

Please let me know if you have any further questions and please positively rate my answer if satisfied.
I do not perform the service of live phone call, but you can propose an offer that will open up to other experts, if you do in fact want a live phone call from an expert (this will be an extra charge).

Just checking back in, did you have any further questions?
