How much does everyone get in Social Security?

What you’re paid depends on how much you earned while working and the age you claimed benefits.

Many choose to retire early, which can cost you up to 30% of your full benefits.

The earliest you can retire is age 62. Your full retirement age of 66-67 will give you 100% of your benefits.

Putting it off until age 70 will boost your benefits, and that will give you more than your full benefit.
