I began drawing Social Security 2 months before I turned 65, but continued to work after retirement for another 12 years. Only increases in that time were COLA annual increases. What about what I paid in until I was 76?

Megan C :

I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to provide you with excellent service, and help you better understand your options.

Megan C :

How are you today?

Megan C :

Your social security benefits are based on the highest 35 years of your earnings

Megan C :

So, if your earnings during the 12 years were not substantially greater than your earnings during the rest of your career, you would not see an increase in your benefits.

Megan C :

May I ask if I have provided excellent service tonight?
