Can You Work And Collect Social Security?
Can you work while collecting Social Security benefits? If so, is it a good idea?
As with many financial questions, the answer isn't black or white, the best answer is: It depends on your individual situation. For Example: If you decide to start collecting benefits before you reach "Full Retirement Age", the government will temporarily reduce the amount you receive or you may have to return part of your Social Security payment.
You paid into Social Security your entire working life. Only a financial professional who specializes in Social Security planning can help you maximize your benefits and make sure you receive everything you're entitled to.
