Yes you can. You will need to contact the Social Security Administration and request that your benefits be suspended. When you do begin collecting again in the future, your benefits will be higher assuming you are under age 70. https://www.ssa.gov/planners/retire/suspend.html

I am also assuming that you are over your full retirement age.
