Like the man sez, don't take my word for it, but IIRC you, like my husband, will be getting a pension as an employee of the state of South Carolina. If so, it has nothing to do with SS and your state pension will not be decremented in any way based on your SS income. Perhaps you've noticed, however, that as of this year, COLAs are now and forever more capped at 1% per annum. Unless and until the state leg changes the regs again.

Thanks for responding -- yes, you remembered correctly. I've talked with the HR people here, and with some former colleagues who are already retired, and nobody ever said anything about it, but I think I'll get in touch with SS Admin just to settle my mind. (I certainly don't need another rude surprise at this point in my life.)
