I cannot speak to your situation but I am nearly 2 1/2 years past FRA, still working (for the next several months), and did not sign up for SSI until recently, effective Jan 01, 2018, and only then because I was "talked into it" by others. First "benefit" payment should arrive in bank in February. Time will tell.
I'm more concerned with Medicare part B, which I declined as I can and will keep my employers health insurance post retirement. I was unable to get information sufficient to make a rational, intelligent decision regarding Part B, so made a best guess decision. Can still change it without penalty for about 8 months. Decisions, decisions.
