Does your employer still withhold Social Security if you are retired and collecting Social Security?
Yes. If you work after retirement, you will still have contributions to Social Security and Medicare (FICA) withheld from your paycheck at the same rate as before retirement.
Yes. As long as you qualify for each, they are unrelated programs that do not affect each other.
You can file as early as age 62, but your benefits will be reduced to about 75% of the amount you would receive if you file at full retirement age. Full retirement age is 65… years for people born before 1943; 66 years for people born between 1943 and 1954; and gradually increases to 67 years for people born in 1955 and later.
Yes, as long as you qualify for each of them individually.
Born between 1943 and 1954 Full Retirement age (FRA) or Normal Retirement age (NRA) will be age 66. Go to the SSA.gov web site Social Security Benefits ONLINE
If a person works past retirement age and collects social security while they work do they continue to pay into social security and medicare?
Yes, and their benefit can get higher as time goes on, because it is based on their highest 35 years of earnings, put in today's dollars.
Yes. If you retire at age 62, you can earn $1,180 per month ($14,160 per year) in wages and an unlimited amount of income from passive sources, like 401k, annuities, dividends…, non-government pensions, etc. The most you can earn in any year prior to reaching full retirement age (most likely 66) is $14,160. If you exceed the limit, the SSA will temporarily reduce your future benefits by $1.00 for every $2.00 earned over the cap. Social Security will withhold your benefit check beginning in January of the following year until the entire overage has been offset.
This is a personal decision and would depend on your financial situation and other factors that you may want to consider. To get the larger monthly benefits and if you are c…apable of working and earning income that is subject to the social security and medicare taxes you could put it off until age 70 to get the maximum monthly benefits that would be available. You can find a lot of useful information about your situation by going to the SSA.gov website SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS ONLINE and use the search box
Yes, you can collect from them both at the same time, as long as you qualified for each of them.
Beginning with people born in 1938 or later, that age gradually increases until it reaches 67 for people born after 1959. Go to the SSA gov web site and use the search box for… FULL RETIREMENT AGE Click on the below Related link
Absolutely. As long as you qualify for each of them individually. Three states currently will offset your unemployment benefits by your Social Security (not the other way arou…nd) and they are Illinois, Virginia, and Utah.

yes. as long as you contribute into the plan, anyone regardless of his/her immigration status is entitled to receive the benefit for which has contributed.
Whether or not a woman can collect on her husbands social security depends on several factors. First, she has to be old enough or disabled. Second, she has to have been marrie…d long enough. Then, she must be widowed or divorced. Other rules may apply. As with everything involving the government, exceptions exist. You will need to see someone at the social security office. If you try to contact someone by phone, you will get a recorded message that someone will get back to you. One person has been waiting 20 years for his call to be returned. You can try the internet. You may or may not get satisfaction. If you visit a social security office, you will be able to get an appointment with a live human being.
Call 1-800-772-1213 or visit Social Security Online for answers. You should contact SSA for specific answer. Of course a teacher can collect social security from a spouse. H…OWEVER, if a teacher worked in a state whose teachers do NOT pay into Social Security (there are 14 of them), their spouse's social security will be reduced. Again, please consult your attorneys, tax advisor, and social security for detailed information and specifics. Ask about WEP (Windfall Provision) and GPO (Government Pension Offset).
