Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

If you wait until full retirement age (66) to start receiving Social Security, you will receive 100% of your benefit amount.

If you start receiving Social Security benefits at age 62, you will receive approximately 75% of your benefit amount.

If you retire and start receiving Social Security benefits at age 62, your benefit amount will not increase when you reach age 66. It will stay the same.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,
