Can I work and get Social Security Retirement ?

The simple answer to this question is yes. However, it is your responsibility to report work/earnings to the Social Security administration in January or February of each year, and any time your earnings are higher than previously estimated.

Should you go over the earnings limit, you will be held accountable for the accrued overpayment. To avoid an overpayment, 1. call your local Social Security office to find out what the earnings limit is for a given year and 2. give an accurate estimate of your work plans for the year.

Usually it is recommended that you bring your W2 form in when you receive it from you employer for a possible increase in your benefit amount, and at that same time you may give your work report for the year.
