Your social security benefits may be re-calculated if you are working and continue to receive earned income subject to social security taxes.

They will not be reduced - but may be increased.

That are generally wages and self-employment income.

Other types of income - like pension, investment income. etc will not affect your social security benefits.

Your social security benefits are based on 35 years for which your earnings (indexed) subject to social security tax was the most.
