Your Social Security Benefits

When Can You Collect Full Social Security Retirement Benefits?

If you were born before 1938, you'll be able to receive full benefits at age 65—the full retirement age. The retirement age has been gradually increased to 67 for covered workers born after 1937. Depending on your income level, a portion of your benefits may be subject to income taxes. If you were born during or after 1938, look at the table below to see when you'll be eligible.
