- Social Security and Retirement
When it comes to preparing for retirement, deciding when to claim Social Security retirement benefits is one of the biggest decisions you'll make. Workers can elect to begin receiving their benefits as soon as age 62, but there may be financial advantages to waiting until "full retirement age"—the age when they receive full benefits.
