Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.
You can get Social Security retirement benefits and work at the same time.
However, if you are younger than full retirement age and make more than the yearly earnings limit, SSA will reduce your benefit.
Starting with the month you reach full retirement age, we will not reduce your benefits no matter how much you earn.
If you were born between 1/2/1943 and 1/1/1955, your full retirement age is 66 years.
If you are under full retirement age for the entire year, SSA deducts $1 from your benefit payments for every $2 you earn above the annual limit. For 2016, that limit is $15,720.
