Why am I getting a letter from SS?

The Social Security Administration (SSA) mails letters each spring to people who might be able to save money on Medicare costs. Get help from a local Medicare or benefits counselor to see whether you're eligible for these cost savings.

What do you do when you're ready to draw Social Security?

Applying online is the easiest way to complete your application at a time that works for you, without a trip to the Social Security office. You can also apply by phone or at a Social Security office.

How many months in advance should I apply for Social Security?

You can apply up to four months before you want your retirement benefits to start. For example, if you turn 62 on December 2, you can start your benefits as early as December, and apply in August. Even if you are not ready to retire, you still should sign up for Medicare three months before your 65th birthday.

How do you know if Social Security is investigating you?

THE SSA INVESTIGATION USUALLY STARTS WITH THE INTERNET

SSA opens their investigation by looking for you on the internet. They will look up your name, phone number, and address. They usually already have this information, but they are checking it to make sure you are living at the address that you say you are living at.

How often does Social Security review your case?

If improvement is possible, but can't be predicted, we'll review your case about every three years. If improvement is not expected, we'll review your case every seven years. Your initial award notice will tell you when you can expect your first medical review.

Is it better to apply for Social Security in person or online?

At what age is Social Security no longer taxed?

However once you are at full retirement age (between 65 and 67 years old, depending on your year of birth) your Social Security payments can no longer be withheld if, when combined with your other forms of income, they exceed the maximum threshold.

How long does it take to get your first Social Security check after applying?

Benefit applications can take up to three months to process, so apply three months before your planned start date. If you are drawing spousal or survivor benefits on another person's earnings record, your payment date depends on that person's birthday and follows the schedule above.

How much money can you have in the bank on Social Security retirement?
