Social Security personnel provides info on your retirement benefits

According to Social Security Administration spokesman B.J. Jarrett, if you opt to work even after you have reached your full retirement age, your Social Security benefits will remain as they are and you will receive no reductions in the total amount that you will receive, no matter how much money you earn, USA Today reported on January 21.

Jarrett clarified that for instance, should the number of years that you have worked before your full retirement age does not constitute the total 35 years minimum needed to qualify for Social Security retirement benefits, you can use the years you work after your retirement age of 66 to add to the total number of your working years.

The only time that your Social Security benefits can be reduced is if you begin receiving retirement benefits before you reach your full retirement age, Jarrett noted.
