Could I start early drawing social security.
Social Security Expert: John, Attorney replied 10 months ago

You have to be 62 or older to draw early social security, regardless of why you are no longer working (even if you retire to take care of a family member). If you are 62-65, you get 75 % of benefit, if oder you get 93.3, if you arre 67 or older you get the full benefit owed.

I believe this answers your question. However, if you need clarification or have follow-up questions regarding this matter, I will be happy to continue our conversation - simply reply to this answer.
