Second opinion] If I am 65 and on social security, and if I suspend my current social security enrollment to go back to work, what would happen to my social security benefits--increase/decrease--if I re-apply, say at age 70, after, of course, I work for another 5 years (to get over mortgage and other debts)? My income would increase over what was reported back in 1962 when I first went on Social Security. So, could I get back on Social Security, and if so, would my benefits be larger, the same, or what (with 5 years of increased income)?
