Ask Social Security Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.
A person can, under limited options, withdraw their application for SSA benefits. You are limited to one withdrawal per lifetime.
If you are receiving Social Security Retirement benefits and you change your mind about when they should start, you may be able to withdraw your Social Security claim and re-apply at a future date.
If you change your mind 12 months or more after you became entitled to retirement benefits, you cannot withdraw your application.
If you applied then withdrew the application you would also have to repay any amount of benefits received.
You would have to fill out Social Security Form SSA-521 and include the reason why you want to withdraw the application on the form.
