Will My Social Security Be Reduced If I Retire And Receive A Pension?

Feb 26 2017 - 8:30am

I received social security (disability) under my husband record who is deceased. I have not worked since 2005 but I am not retired and plan to do so this year under the pension plan. Will my income be reduced, I am 64.

Hi,

I can't give you a definite answer based on the information furnished in your question. Certain types of pensions can cause Social Security benefits to be reduced or offset, but only if the earnings on which the pensions are based were exempt from Social Security taxes. For more information on these provisions, refer to these Social Security publications: https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10045.pdf & https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10007.pdf.

Best, Jerry
