Yes, the moment you hit your full retirement age, you can earn unlimited amounts of income while collecting your FULL benefit.

But, if I may add... if you plan on still working and can live within those means, have you considered waiting a bit longer, to age 70, to collect your SSR? If you do, that primary insurance amount you would collect at 66+ would grow by a whopping 32%.

So if you have a PIA of $1500, this would be OVER $2000/month if you delay taking it til age 70.
