Earnings after retirement


Q. If you retire from the federal government at age 67 and then work in private industry, are there restrictions on the amount you can earn? What about Social Security? Is that restricted?

A. Once you have reached your full Social Security retirement age, you can earn as much as you want without it having any effect on your annuity or your Social Security benefit.
