1704. When do you need to provide proof of age?

You must submit proof of age when age is a factor in determining benefit rights. For example:

  1. Age of child for child's insurance benefits (see Chapter 3 for age requirement);

  2. Age 62 and over for retirement or dependent's insurance benefits;

  3. Age of deceased worker when it affects the benefit computation or insured status; or

  4. Age of disabled worker for disability insurance benefits.

I will turn 62 in March 2012 but do not want to start receiving my SS checks until Sept. 2012. What do I need to do to make sure this happens in a timely manner?
