  2. Age 62 and over for retirement or dependent's insurance benefits;

  3. Age of deceased worker when it affects the benefit computation or insured status; or

  4. Age of disabled worker for disability insurance benefits.

Receiving SS check for the 1st time

January 15, 2012 by Guest

I will turn 62 in March 2012 but do not want to start receiving my SS checks until Sept. 2012. What do I need to do to make sure this happens in a timely manner?
