  • If you are 67 at the end of 2019, your full retirement age is 66 because you were born before 1955. Actually, at full retirement age your disability benefit automatically converts to retirement, so it is likely that you are now receiving a retirement benefit, not disability.

    More good news, since you are past your full retirement age, you are no longer subject to the earnings test! However, you will still be responsible for taxes based on your overall income. Depending on how much income you earn, up to 85% of your Social Security benefit may be subject to taxes.

    You should call the Social Security office for more about your specific situation. Or, work with one of the planners at New Retirement to discuss your projections.
