Q. I'll be 65 next month and am wondering when I can start receiving Social Security benefits?
A. If my math is correct, you were born in 1947. To receive your full social security benefit, you will need to wait one more year. Persons born between 1943 & 1954 must wait until age 66 to receive full social security benefits. The Social Security Retirement Planner is an excellent online resource to help you plan. I suggest you use the actual Social Security website and become familiar with it. This is an excellent free resource. Take advantage of it!
