Should benefits be refigured if you continue to pay ss after retirement? We owned a business and continued to pay ss after filing for benefits at 66, but our checks continued to be the same amount.
Possibly. Social Security retirement benefits are calculated based on a person's best 35 years of inflation adjusted earnings, and can be recalculated annually to include higher years of earnings. So, if your earnings after retirement are high enough to replace one of your previous best 35 years of earnings, your benefit rate should go up.
