Ask Rusty – Will My Social Security Benefits Ever Stop?

October 26, 2020 | Presenting: Russell Gloor - AMAC Foundation Social Security Advisor

Has someone who paid into Social Security for most of their life ever lost their benefits later in life? For example, if they start collecting benefits at age 62 and live to be 85 or longer, could they suddenly lose their benefits? Can Social Security ever come along later and say “Sorry, you’ve used up all your benefits?”  I know there are many people, including me, who have no other income or savings, so if their SS suddenly stopped they would need assistance to survive. I started my benefits at age 62 because I had to. I’ve always been in reasonably good health, so I wonder – what if I live to be 85, 90 or 95 – will I still have enough in the system to get my Social Security check?
