If I Retire and Then Take a Part-time Job, Will I Still Receive All My Social Security Benefits?
If you are under full retirement age (age 65 and 4 months in 2004), then there is a limit to how much you can earn and still receive all of your Social Security benefits. If you are under full retirement age, the Social Security Administration will deduct $1 from your social security benefits for every $2 you earn above $11,640.
If you are age 65 and 4 months or older, you are entitled to keep all of your social security benefits, no matter how much you earn in your part-time job.
Do I Need a Lawyer to Help Me With My Social Security Matter?
The laws that regulate social security are very complex and confusing. It isn't always clear which benefits you are entitled to. A lawyer or non-attorney claimant’s representative can help you understand which Social Security benefits you should be receiving. He or she can also help you if you need to appeal a denial of Social Security benefits.
