Ask Rusty – Does Paying SS Tax Now Increase My Benefit?

August 23, 2021 | Presenting: Russell Gloor -AMAC Foundation Social Security Advisor

Dear Rusty: I started drawing my benefits at age 62 due to being laid off from my job at age 60. I have continued working part time and been paying Social Security and Medicare taxes ever since. I am now 66. I have been told that even though I continue to pay these taxes, it will not help increase my monthly social security benefit. Is that true? Signed: Working Beneficiary
