Answer: The following is general social security information that may be obtained at lawforseniors.org it states: if you have paid into the program long enough—roughly 10 years—you will be eligible for full benefits sometime between the ages of 65 and 67 (depending on your date of birth). What you receive will be based on your past earnings. You may qualify for reduced benefits at age 62. But such benefits, if taken at that age, will remain at that lower level permanently. Or, you can put off collecting any benefits until age 70. You will receive delayed retirement credit and wind up with a larger monthly check—as much as 8 percent more for each year beyond your retirement age. To learn about your specific situation and what you are qualified for, call (800)772-1213 or visit the official Social Security Administration's website for a free personal statement from the Social Security Administration. To find out what other types of benefits might be available to you, you can also check the National Council on Aging’s “benefits checkup” Web site . Social Security also has a toll-free number that operates from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday: 1-800-772-1213.
