o withdraw your application

Fill out Social Security Form SSA-521 and include the reason why you want to withdraw the application on the form.

...

Note: If you already have Medicare, your request must also clearly state whether your Medicare coverage should or should not be included in the withdrawal.

...

If you want to keep your benefits and just terminate your Medicare Part B coverage, you cannot use Form SSA-521.

...

  1. Send us the completed form. We will notify you of the amount of benefits you need to repay.

...

We will notify you when there is a decision about your withdrawal request.

...

You have 60 days to cancel an approved withdrawal. After that, you will lose any possible entitlement for the period covered by your original application.

...

If you cannot withdraw your retirement application

If you have reached full retirement age, but are not yet age 70, you can ask us to suspend benefit payments.
