Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.

Ask Your Own Social Security Question

You can start your Social Security retirement benefits as early as age 62 or as late as age 70. If working after one reaches their full retirement age (for most that is 66) SSA does not reduce or limit their benefits.

So yes, a person that is 70 and still working while receiving their benefits, does not have their benefits reduced because of work.

Please let me know if you need more information.
