Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

The reason why you are not seeing an increase in your monthly benefit amount is because Social Security uses your 35 HIGHEST earning years to determine your benefit amount. Continuing to work after you are receiving Social Security will usually not result in an increase in your benefit amount.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
