Maximize Your Social Security: Working While Collecting


Retirement is a time of excitement for a whole new chapter in life, but it’s also a time of research to ensure you’re maximizing you social security benefits…

My last post, “Maximize Your Social Security: Will Not Getting a Paycheck for Multiple Years Reduce Your Social Security Benefits” talked about how to plan ahead for retirement while this post is diving into those details right before you reach the ripe old age of retirement.

You most likely already know that you can collect social security during the year of your 66th birthday…even if you’re still working. What you may not realize is that if you are still working, you could lose out on a lot of money if you’re not careful. This is one year where you don’t want to make a lot of money until your 66th birthday. If you have a January birthday, you don’t have to worry as much as someone who has a birthday in November and is planning to work that full year.

With these variables come a lot of questions and ones you really need to take the time to answer. For example, you may be better off retiring sooner than you thought or would be smart to wait a few more months. Our government doesn’t make it easy on our soon to be retirees, but there is help out there if you need someone to walk through the details with.
