Good Morning,

I will be 62 in July. I work 32.50 hours a week could I get my S.S. and work also?


The answer to your question depends on how much you're earning. You could potentially be paid reduced Social Security benefits starting at age 62 for any months that you earn no more than $1470, or if you earn no more than $17,640 during the calendar year of 2019. If you'll be earning more than $1470 in all months this year, Social Security would need to withhold $1 of your benefits for each $2 that you earn in excess of $17,640. That could result in full or partial withholding of your benefits depending on your benefit rate and the amount of your earnings.

You should strongly consider using our software to explore and compare your filing options so that you can choose the best possible strategy for claiming your benefits.

Best, Jerry
