Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. If you take an early retirement benefit at age 64, your benefit level will remain the same for the remainder of your life---unless you continue to work and pay more social security taxes, or when you get annual cost of living increases. There is no automatic increase at age 66 if you take an early social security retirement benefit.
