AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

If I don't have 40 quarters yet at age 70, can I wait to file for Social Security benefits until I do, even if that is age 75?

En español | Yes, you can wait to file for Social Security until age 75 if that is how long it will take for you to become eligible to receive benefits.  However, benefits will stop growing at age 70.
