I was not given the option to pay in to Social Security because the Commission gave me 13% of my pay through a private insurance Company New York Life.I paid 360 dollars of my pay and my employer paid 140 dollars for a total of 500 for twelve years as an annuity. I was told by New York Life that this money would give me 500 extra dollars per month in addition to my social security, I drew Social Security/ 907 dollars per month starting at 65. at 70 and 1/2 New York Life said I had to start drawing this annuity and quit work completely since I was working part time. Social Security informed me that this was a government pension and that since I lived in SC that i could not draw both after protesting , Social Security said I could draw a check of 488 from my husband which is a substational reduction from 907 dollars, thus I am being penalized for putting extra money for living expenses because I live in a state that recognizes this annuity as a government pension.
