Customer Question

In 2000 I arrived in Honolulu,Hawaii from a 5 year Esl teaching assignment in South
Korea. For over a decade I lived in woods w/tent as a Stanford grad., Class 0f 1968.
In 2010 I applied for early ssn. Benefits at age 63., receiving the 50% amount.
In 2014 I got housing from my military experience, '76-'79, a medic, 82nd Airborne Div..
My Question: I took the early benefit due to the difficult circumstance in Sherwood Forest,
( tent burned, theft, centipede bites). Can I possibly refund the amount I was paid for
Early claim benefits and be allowed full benefits as I continue to live in stringent financial
Situation? I never really gave the female ssn. Interviewer much detail about my situation
In 2010. Sincerely, ***** ***** Nines. B.A. Stanford, Psychology.( during the decade I
Taught myself the butterfly and wrote 850 letters )

Unfortunately, you cannot withdraw your application now, repay your benefits, and then reapply again to get the full benefits. You are only allowed to do this before the 12th month after your application. it is too late withdraw and reapply.
