Social Security: Starting SSA retirement benefits early at reduced rate causes permanent reduction

Email

Q: Is there a recalculation of your Social Security retirement amount once reaching full retirement age, even if you started benefits earlier?

A: Starting reduced Social Security retirement benefits when younger than full retirement age results in permanently reduced benefits.

Your retirement amount will not increase just because you have gotten older, although you do receive cost-of- living increases.
