Ask a Social Security Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your question, and thanks for requesting me. Your salary will impact your benefits - you will have a reduction equal to $1 for every $2 you earn over $15,120
Your work does impact your benefit, but only until you reach full retirement age. Once you are full retirement age you can work an unlimited amount
Thanks, Megan. I guess it really won't benefit me to apply for his social security then. My social security benefit will be higher than his so I will just collect mine when I retire.
Well what you can do is collect his at full retirement age, and allow yours to grow to its maximum at age 70
I don't think I want to be working when I'm 70!
No, I understand that!
Full retirement age is?
So for four years I can collect his full benefit?
Yes, you can and your benefit would continue to accrue so that when you draw it, it will be its maximum possible
Thank you for your help in understanding these complex rules.
