Will My Payment From The Public School System Affect My Social Security Benefit?

I worked at a small private College for 34 years, paying into Social Security. I retired from that and started working in the Public School system (high school). I am enrolled in their state wide retirement program and will be vested in it after (5) years. My question is this: Will I receive my full Social Security payment (established to be around $1300) plus my retirement benefits from my involvement in the public school system (5 years, approx. $700 per month). Does my payment from the public school system affect my Social Security payments? Thank you.

Does WEP Make A Difference In When I Should Start Drawing Benefits?

I taught overseas for the Dept. of Defense Dependents Schools (Dodds) for 10 years and paid Social Security for 40 quarters. I have a small federal retirement w/Dodds and a Texas Teacher's Annuity. The Texas Teacher's Annuity doesn't pay social security so a Windfall Provision reduces my SS. There is talk of doing away with it, but no telling when. Having taught for Dodds overseas and paid SS, should I be penalized since I was teaching for the U.S. Government for those ten years? Is it better to take SS now at 69 or wait until May when I'm 70 to see what happens with Windfall?

Which Representive Is Correct?

I am a retired Texas teacher. I retired in 2014 I will be 66 09/15/2016. At 63 I filed on my ex-husband's benefits and was told I would not receive any money because I made too much money. Everytime I call or go in to see Social Security they tell me something different. Today I had two people on different lines telling the opposite things. The one I like said in September I will receive $504 and month. There is also a letter from Carolyn Covin

Will My Social Security Benefit Be Affected If I Stop Paying SS Taxes?

After working in the private sector and having “substantial earnings” and Social Security contributions for 25 consecutive years, I left the workforce in 2012 at age 45, took two years off to get a graduate degree, and then became a public elementary school teacher in Massachusetts. I intend to work exclusively as a public school teacher for at least 15 years (with no outside covered work during this time, thus no Social Security contributions) and expect to collect a modest pension from this brief teaching career starting at about age 63.

Will My Non-Covered Work Hurt My Divorced Spousal Benefit?

I taught school for about seven months (Aug 1974-March 1975) in a Texas school district that did not take out social security from teachers' paychecks. Will this affect my ability to take my divorced spousal benefit when I reach FRA in Feb 2018? I have more than 40 years of SSI credit besides my short time as a teacher.

My financial advisor said another client could not take her divorced spousal benefit because she had taught for 25 years in a district that did not take out social security for teachers.

Is The Information I Received Correct?

I am 81 years old and have been receiving federal retirement benefits since I retired in 1995. I was told I cannot receive a portion of my deceased husband's retirement benefits since I receive my own federal retirement check. I worked a short time in the private sector and receive $92.00 a month Social Security from my own eligibility. My first husband, to whom I was married for over 25 years, died recently. Because of my own federal retirement check, I expect that I cannot receive any of his payments either. He was 78 years old and was already collecting social security.

Can I Draw Benefits On My Husband's Record?

I retired at age 60 from a job earning about $46,000. a year. Since I worked for a school district I am collecting on my PERS (Public Employees Retirement System). My husband retired from the certificated sector of education so he is collecting on his STRS (State Teachers Retirement System). I am planning on waiting until the age of 70 to begin collecting on my Social Security. Is this the best I can do? Also, what about any Social Security monies my husband has contributed over his lifetime? Can I collect on that even though he is not allowed?

Hi,

Are My Ex-Spouse's Social Security Benefits Affected By Getting Part Of My City Pension?

my ex husband will receive a percent of my pension when I retire (I am a city employee and pension is my only retirement, I do not have social security benefits). he will also receive his own retirement plan (401 type plan) and social security benefits. will his own social security benefits be affected by the fact that he will also receive some of my pension? will his benefit be offset by anything? can I use his SS benefit to decrease the amount of my pension that he receives? thank you
