It's not an option on your part. If you don't file for reduced retirement benefits your SSI will be terminated. Why? SSI (supplemental security income) is a federal WELFARE program. It requires that you file for and receive any other benefit you can get to cut down on the cost of SSI. Depending upon the amount of your reduced retirement benefit your SSI will either be terminated or reduced. It will be terminated if your reduced retirement benefit is over $754 a month; it will be reduced if it is under $755 a month – if that is the case between the two benefits you will receive $755 a month.

I don't know why you are asking about it here – you would have received a notice from SSI giving you 30 days in which to file the social security claim – and that notice explains why you are required to file for reduced retirement – it also tells you what will happen if you don't file.

If you have retirement funds available to you, that will affect your SSI elgibility.
