Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will e happy to help you.

You reached your full retirement age in November last year. After your FRA you can have unlimited earnings and keep your full benefits. The 41880 limit applied to 2016, the year in which you reached your full retirement age. The offset is most likely from prior years. We do not have access to social security records so you will need to contact social security directly to find out why your benefits are being reduced.

Any questions? Here's the 2017 SS fact sheet. https://www.ssa.gov/news/press/factsheets/colafacts2017.pdf

Almost at the bottom of the first page you will see the following: There is no limit on earnings beginning the month an individual attains full retirement age.
