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

If you want to apply for social security benefits, you have several options. You can do it online, calling social security directly or visit your local social security office. You can start online right here: https://secure.ssa.gov/iClaim/rib

Can you tell me how much I would receive each month
Expert:  emc011075 replied 3 months ago.

I do not have access to your social security account or work history. You may also be eligible for benefits based on somebody else's records, like your current spouse, ex-spouse or widows benefits. Your full retirement age is at 66 so if you apply before your 66th birthday, you benefits will be reduced. Here's social security benefits calculator: https://www.ssa.gov/OACT/quickcalc/early_late.html

You can get your full retirement age benefits (primary insurance amount) from your online social security account.
