Social Security beneficiaries by age
Using the form below, you can see the number of currently paid beneficiaries by age. Just select the type of beneficiary and click on "Go." Privacy consideration—if there are only 1 or 2 beneficiaries in a given table cell, we show a value of 0 for the number of beneficiaries and show no benefit amount.
Note that the average benefit amounts provided by the forms below represent the amounts due to beneficiaries in current payment status for the month(s) included in the table. These amounts exclude any adjustments to benefits for retroactive payments and certain payment withholding that may be attributable to eligibility in prior months. Therefore, these data do not represent total benefits paid from the trust funds. Total benefit payment data including these effects are available here.
|85 & over||5,772||2,104||36.5||3,668||63.5|
|Total, age 62 & over||54,509||24,389||44.7||30,120||55.3|
Totals do not necessarily equal the sum of rounded components.
