Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

1. Are you asking if you can work and earn $1,000 a month in addition to your social security benefit?

2. What is your present age?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Hi Doug, My name is Lorraine. I am 70 years old. I understood that there was a way to have $1000 ,free and clear, added to my social security check. Is that true?

Good afternoon Lorraine,

I'm sorry for any confusion about the social security laws, but you appear to have been misinformed. There is no program of the social security administration that allows you to increase your social security benefits by $1,000---either per month, or on a one time basis.

I wish you the best in 2013.
