If you are like many federal government or USPS retirees, you are contemplating a part-time job to help supplement your retirement benefits and savings. Many don’t realize that a part-time job can have Social Security and Medicare implications. Here are some things to keep in mind:
- If you start taking Social Security before your full retirement age, earning more than $17,040 from work will reduce your benefits temporarily.
- Once you’re on Medicare, extra income could potentially trigger surcharges for parts B and D.
- Also, don’t overlook your required minimum distributions from retirement accounts once you reach age 70½.
Case In Point
We know of a man who took Social Security at age 62 and got a bill from them for $2,000 when he was 65 because his new career made more than his previous one. Of course the new job was too lucrative to quit over the $2,000, but a shocker nevertheless.
