HI. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

Once you reach your full retirement age you can have unlimited earnings and your benefits will not be affected at all. While not very likely, your benefits may actually increase if your earnings are higher than your past average earnings.

However, if your earnings are high enough, your Medicare premium may increase.
