I applied for social security in July 2013. My application was approved. However, since I
made too much money this year, I will not receive benefits. I am retired. Do I need to
reapply again the first of the year (2014)? Thank you for your help.

Megan C :

I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to provide you with excellent service, and help you better understand your options.

Megan C :

How are you today?

Megan C :

You do not need to file for social security again. Your benefits will start back up after the first of the year.
