Calculate the best retirement age to claim your Social Security benefitsEn español | Let the Social Security Calculator help you figure out how much retirement income you’ll receive at different claiming ages so you can determine when you should claim Social Security. Can you afford to "retire early" and claim benefits at age 62, should you wait until your full retirement age, or can you wait until age 70 in order to receive the largest possible monthly benefit?
