Your full retirement age ( (also called "normal retirement age") is 66.

Full retirement age is the age at which a person may first become entitled to full or unreduced retirement benefits.

You may work and receive your social security benefits at the same time.

Your social security benefits will NOT be reduced because of your earning - regardless how much you earn.

Let me know if you need any clarification this matter.
