I have a question regarding my SS benefits concerning the Windfall Elimination Provision. I retired from the State of La after 23 yrs and draw a monthly retirement check from them. I then worked and paid in SS and at my applying for beneits at 65, I was told my retirement benefits off set my SS gross benefits, believe her words were "dollar for dollar". I was eligible for gross SS mo benefits of $423-Medicare premium
, I draw $309 net a mo SS. I do not think the correct Windfall rate was applied. I had under 20 yrs pd into SS system, and on that chart at age 62 in 2010, it looks as the correct rate would be 380.5. I think they should have counted far less against my gross SS benefits, and my check should be higher. Can you check to see if this is correct? I have been drawing the gross $430 SS since 12/2015, and just learned to this Windfall info. Can I get back pay too from date I first became eligible, if they figured incorrectly?

JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Real Estate? I have a question on SS benefits....but I reside in the state of MS
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: I already filed at age 65, I receive a monthly SS check, net benefits $309 a month. I do not think this is correct. Did you get my email about the Windfall Provision?
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Does she have access to the SS system? I had a mastectomy on 09/23/2015, and applied in Oct or Nov 2015, and my mind set wasn't that good. I don't have any idea of my gross mo entitlement BEFORE my State retirement was applied and subtracted out. If I need to sign anything for her to get this info, I am willing.
