You can work and still receive Social Security retirement benefits, but the income that you earn before you reach full retirement age may affect the amount of benefit that you receive. But once you reach your full retirement age(which is 67 years), You can make any amount of income without affecting your social security income .
If you're under full retirement age: $1 in benefits will be deducted for every $2 in earnings you have above the annual limit
In the year you reach full retirement age: $1 in benefits will be deducted for every $3 you earn over the annual limit (a different limit applies here) until the month you reach full retirement age
Once you reach full retirement age, you can work and earn as much income as you want without reducing your Social Security retirement benefit.
