You can get Social Security retirement benefits and work at the same time.

However, if you are younger than full retirement age and make more than the yearly earnings limit, the SSA will reduce your benefit.

66 is your FRA - full retirement age.

If you are under full retirement age for the entire year, the SSA will deduct $1 from your benefit payments for every $2 you earn above the annual limit.

For 2018 that limit is $17,040.

In the year you reach full retirement age, the would deduct $1 in benefits for every $3 you earn above a different limit, but they only count earnings before the month you reach your full retirement age.

If you will reach full retirement age in 2018, the limit on your earnings for the months before full retirement age is $45,360.

Starting with the month you reach full retirement age, you can get your benefits with no limit on your earnings.

If that will be your TOTAL earned income for 2018 - your social security benefits will NOT be affected.
