I have a disability...

I have a disability retirement from law enforcement where I didn’t pay into SS. Since then I have worked for 20 years and paid into SS. If I decide to start taking SS benefits next year at 66, while my amount be reduced because of my disability reitirement?

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. Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?

I don’t think so. It’s pretty straightforward

Your social security benefits may be affected by WEP - Windfall Elimination Provision

If you had 20 years working under the social security system - the maximum your benefits may be reduced in 2018 -

$447.5.

When you will have at least 30 years under social security - WEP will not affect you.

Let me know if you need any help with determination.
