When to start drawing SSI

I retired in 1/1/20 at 59 1/2.  One year ago in August at age 60 I started drawing widowers SSI.  When should I start drawing on my SSI ?

When to start drawing SSI

SSA will convert your widowers claim when you reach full retirement age if your benefit amount is greater.

Thanks for you answer but my question is would it be better to draw a 62 or wait .   $500 per month more difference at 62.  $1500 at 67.  $2100 difference at 70.
