How Do I Answer The Reduced Benefits Question?

Oct 2 2019 - 6:32am

I'm filling in the SS application. I'm 65 now and will be 66 in 3 months. I don't want the SS to start until I'm 66 to take advantage at tha5t age. How do I answer the "reduced benefits" question?

Hi,

I'm not sure what question you're referring to, but if you're filing online and you want your benefits to start effective with the month you reach age 66 you can simply specify that month as your month of election to begin benefits.
