AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

If I retire at 62 or 64 and begin benefits, will I get an increase when I get to 66?

En español | No, you will not.  When you claim Social Security benefits early, monthly payments are permanently reduced for the remaining years that you receive them.  However, if you continue working and your benefit is reduced by the Retirement Earnings Test, then your payment could be increased at your full retirement age.
