You need to double check what they put down on your application. Social Security does not pay retroactive benefits — but you want to make sure your application starts with your current age.
You have now reached Full Retirement Age and should have benefits starting at this point. But if you want to double-check that you are getting the correct amount, I suggest you go to www.MaximizeMySocialSecurity.com and pay the $39 to run through the software.
SS has been making a lot of mistakes lately, and clawing back benefits when they figure it out. That’s truly painful.
