I'll be 61 and 9 months on April 22nd (7/21) birthday... SS!
I've read I can apply for social security three months before my 62nd birthday. Yeah I know I get more if I wait but, my SS will just cover our health benefits. I can afford to retire anytime I want but I'll feel better if I don't have to write that big check out of earnings ... (I've got a couple of health issues too)
My son is 17 I understand that he will get 1/2 of what I get until he is 18.
My question - file on line or just go to the SS office? I can take the day off I and make it into a celebration- 33 days vacation left for this year.
It gets better a my current project is winding down.. A old colleague asked me to work for him I think it will facilitate working from home.
