culcha:"In planning for retirement I have been counting on (estimated) social security payments and (estimated) pension payments, and just adding the two of them together, thinking that it would all be income. But just recently I seem to to have heard or read somewhere that the SS payment is REDUCED in cases in which a pension is received. I already figured that the pension amount would make more of the SS amount taxable, but I never thought the SS payments would be reduced. "

As long as your pension is from a private employer or state .....NO....

There are some deals like Veterans benefits/pensions or other government agencies where you didn't contribute the full amount to SS....or if your employer was exempt from SS (like the military and their pension system).....

If you paid into get your SS.....based upon the number of years and amount you made each year...up to 35 years.....
