Good evening again,

You asked: does capital gain income decrease your soc sec income post retirement

No, capital gain income is deemed passive income and does not effect the amount of money you may earn without penalty, when you are receiving an early social security retirement benefit.

Good afternoon,

Do you have any additional questions that you would like me to address for you? In case you would like a phone call to further discuss these issues you have raised, I will make that offer to you. You are certainly not obligated to accept a call offer, but many people do find it helpful for clarification purposes, as well as to allow them to ask additional questions.

If I have provided you with the information you asked for, would you please now rate my service to you so I can be compensated for assisting you?

Thanks in advance,
