As such, there's a world of Social Security advice out there designed to help retirees make smart choices with their benefits. You're entitled to your full monthly Social Security benefit based on your earnings history once you reach full retirement age, or FRA, which is either 66, 67, or somewhere in between, depending on your year of birth.
