{AUDIO} Take a listen: Social Security: Can I Have a Do-Over?

When can officially have a Social Security do-over?

You have 12 months after you first begin receiving Social Security.

How does someone go about a Social Security do-over?

In those instances where retirees are healthy enough to work and have been receiving a Social Security benefit for less than 12 month, you must file and submit a "Request for Withdrawal of Application".

Need help or have questions regarding your Social Security? We can help.

We can help you not only apply for a "Request for Withdrawal", we can also help you strategize your Social Security benefit as part of your total retirement income plan.
