1503.1 Why should you contact us before you turn 62?
If you are a worker, you may get in touch with a Social Security office up to four months before you turn 62. We will give you the information you need so you can decide whether or not to file an application for reduced retirement benefits at that time.
1503.2 When should you contact us if you do not file an application for reduced retirement benefits at 62?
If you do not file an application for reduced retirement benefits at age 62, you should contact us again:
Up to 4 months before you plan to retire;
As soon as you know that you will neither earn more than the monthly exempt amount (see §1807.5) in wages nor render substantial services in self-employment in one or more months of the year, regardless of expected total annual earnings (see Chapter 18 for the earnings test); or
Up to 4 months before you reach Full Retirement Age (FRA), even if you are still working.
