Eligibility - Social Security: Am I Eligible?

Social Security: Am I Eligible? AARP's Social Security Question and Answer Tool works as an online retirement planning resource, designed to assist those who are eligible for benefits as well as those who are unsure. The SSQA Tool acts also as a guide, explaining in plain English the information one needs to know regarding how to apply for Social Security, spousal and survivor benefits, choosing the optimum retirement age to file a claim, choices for citizens living (and retiring) abroad, and even help to calculate the benefit amount you're entitled to receive. AARP's Social Security Question and Answer Tool is a starting point towards an informed decision about you and your benefit eligibility.
