Social Security supplement


Q. If receiving the supplement ends at age 62, does this mean I must file for Social Security at that age and be locked in for SS at the 62 age rate or can I wait until the age I select? A. There is no requirement that you file for a Social Security benefit when the special retirement supplement ends. However, the amount of that Social Security benefit will be the one you were entitled to at age 62.
