How does self-employment affect Social Security Retirement benefits ?

Self-employment is a very technical issue because individuals who are self-employed or are corporate officers have more control over their monetary situation than individuals who work in an employment capacity for others. For this reason, self- employment and corporate situations require the Social Security Administration to make a special determination as to entitlement to early Social Security retirement.

However, once an individual reaches full retirement age, there is no special determination necessary to receive a Social Security benefit.

Self employed individuals and corporate officers should contact the local Social Security office to address issues pertinent to their particular situation.
