Customer Question
Does the special rule...

Does the special rule for the first year you retire apply for year 2016?

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

Under the first year rule, you can get a full social security check for any whole month you're retired, regardless of yearly earnings.

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?

Did this special rule apply in 2016?
