A pension based on earnings not covered by Social Security can affect the amount of your Social Security benefit.

This provision may affect you when you earn a pension from an employer who didn’t withhold Social Security taxes and you qualify for Social Security retirement or disability benefits from work in other jobs for which you did pay taxes.

If your pension is not from an employer who did not withhold SS then your benefits will not be affected.
