Social Security benefit while still employed


Q.  I am employed by the Postal Service and covered by CSRS. I turned 66 this past spring and applied for and now receiving Social Security benefit checks. I applied at my local office and was told that as long as I keep working, I am not subject to WEP but when I retire, it will kick in and I must inform them. Is this true?

A. Yes
