I've reached my full social security age and have been working part-time

Accountant's Assistant: The Retirement Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

Sorry , I reached my full social security age and have been working part-time for a couple of years. The only other income I have is a small PBGC Retirement Income. I earn between $750. to $1,000. per month plus my retirement and social security. As I'm working part-time will my social security ever increase?

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?

No I just wondered as of course I pay taxes on my paycheck but only work part-time...

You might wonder how the SSA figures your Social Security retirement benefit.

They base Social Security benefits on your lifetime earnings - adjust or “index” your actual earnings to account for changes in average wages since the year the earnings were received.

Social Security Expert: lev-tax, Tax Advisor replied 11 months ago

Then Social Security calculates your average indexed monthly earnings during the 35 years in which you earned the most.

The SSA recalculates benefits every year.

So if these additional years or earning will be included into these 35 years you earned the most - that earning will increase your social security benefits.
