Customer Question
I’m have been collecting...

I’m have been collecting my deceased husband’s monthly SS benifts . I stopped working full time in order to meet the criteria .

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits properly. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

I resigned a 33 year Job & has a 403b retirement fund . I cannot keep up the maintenance of my home, can I withdraw money from there without it being earned income ?

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

No... just need an answer please

Distribution from retirement funds is NOT earned income and will not affect social security benefits.

ONLY earned income - wages and self-employment income will be considered

and ONLY if you are below your FRA - full retirement age.

Let me know if you need any clarification this matter.
