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

Just Answer is NOT associated with Social Security so we do not have access to your personal information.

You can apply for Social Security benefits at age 62, but keep in mind that you will receive approximately 75% of your full benefit amount.

Full retirement age is 66, and that is when you will receive 100% of your benefit amount.

The best way to view your benefit amounts is to register for an online Social Security account.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
