Q. I’m a retired federal employee at 58 years with 30 years. When I retired the information I received was if I went to work, I was limited to making $15,000 a year before losing my Social Security supplement. Is that still the correct answer?
A. The annual earnings limit applies to the special retirement supplement of FERS retirees who are under full Social Security retirement age. With rare exception, the limit changes every year. It hasn’t been close to $15,000 since 2001. This year it’s $17,040.
