I have worked in private industry for years and just got a job with the City of Houston a year ago. How does this affect my social security benefits when I retire?

Does the job include a pension? Do you pay into social security in this new job?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I do get a pension,but no social security. Dudu lose the social security I previously had? Can I go back into private industry to get the social security back?

My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.You do not lose your benefits but they can be offset with some called the windfall elimination provision (wep). If you have substantial earnings over 30 years then this provision does not apply. See the WEP chart on this link to help you ascertain how it will effect you. See link: so if the pension is small, it offsets only a smaller portion. So you will likely still receive a retirement benefit, but it might be offset by your government pension.Please let me know if you have any further questions and please positively rate my answer if satisfied. There should be smiley faces or numbers from 1-5 to choose from. This extra step will cost you nothing extra and will ensure that I will be compensated for my time by the site.
