Hi, my name is ***** ***** I can help. Yes, you can work while collecting Social Security retirement benefits. If you have reached your full retirement age their is no limit on the amount you can earn. However, if you elect to start collecting benefits earlier than your full retirement age, your benefits will be reduced by $1 for every $2 you earn over $15,720 for 2015. See the attached pamphlet from the Social Security Administration.

I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if I can clarify anything or answer any additional questions.

Thanks, Jonathan
