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

If you took your social security at 62 you permanently reduced all your benefits (your own or spousal) for the rest of your life. The only way to correct it is to repay all your benefits you received and re-apply at latter age. But you will have to do it withing 12 after you received your first check.
