I’m 58 years old and plan to retire at age 62. When should I actually apply?

Published: July 10, 2020

Hello there,

It is recommended you apply three months prior to starting benefits.

Therefore, if you plan on retiring at 62, you should apply for Social Security when you are 61 years and 9 months.

Here is more information about how to apply.

Take care,
Martha
