  1. I am currently receiving half of my wife’s ss and delaying my own until I turn 70. I will turn 70 this coming August, do I have to apply again or will my own payments begin automatically? Thanks in advance

    • Hi Jeff, thanks for using our blog. You need to apply to receive Social Security retirement benefits and you can do that four months before you want your benefits to start. When you’re ready to apply for retirement benefits, use our online retirement application, the quickest, easiest, and most convenient way to apply.

      If you are unable to apply online, call us at 1-800-772-1213 or you can contact your local Social Security office to make an appointment. Please look for the general inquiry telephone number at the Social Security Office Locator. The number may appear under Show Additional Office Information. Please be aware that our call wait times are longer than normal. We hope this information helps.
