Do not schedule an appointment earlier than the month following the date of the notice
if, the individual is making an inquiry concerning his or her retirement insurance
benefit (RIB) and wants their Month of Election (MOEL) effective the month he or she
attains age 70. The system cannot process advance file cases any earlier than four
months prior to the MOEL.
In most cases, a claimant who continues to work will not lose any benefits if:
he or she makes an appointment,
we establish a date of entitlement prior to the month of attainment of age 70, and
we place him or her in work suspense through the month of attaining age 70.
In all other situations, follow routine procedures for scheduling appointments.
