After 70

I am 65 today, and still working in a state job. I am a federal retiree and therefore subject to WEP. I want to continue to work until 70. Is it mandatory to take SS at 70, and if I continue to work past 70 will that increase my SS? I am elligible for a state pension in 8 months. Information is very sketchy for people in my position.

and if i do will my benefits increase for the extra contributions?

The reason I ask about additional contributions is because I will not have 35 years of paying SS because I am CSRS. By paying in after 70 and increasing the years that I have contributed I don't see how that is figured into the formula other that increase the high 3. I can't believe that years worked after 70 can be totally ignored in the computations.
