Social Security offset for state employment and calculation of Social Security benefits for a state worker

When I retire, will my Social Security benefits be calculated using -0- for each of the last 6 years of non-Social Security employment with the State of Maine?

If I am collecting Social Security at age 62 and I work for the State of Maine, a non Social Security paying agency, will I be docked any amount of Social Security if I earn these non-Social Security wages?

Four Common Social Security Claiming Mistakes

1. Not knowing your full retirement age (FRA). 'Full benefit' retirement age is rising beyond age 65 to age 67.

2. Not knowing you can file for benefits three months in advance of receiving income

3. Forgetting Social Security benefits can be subject to income tax.

4. Thinking early filers can later receive 'full benefits'. If filing early, your benefits are permanently reduced.
