I retired from Wells Fargo this past July at age 62, after most of my IT department had been outsourced to India. It was a move that I did not want to make, but had to make for stress-related health issues.

I have qualified for SS benefits and started to receive them earlier this month. I am also taking money out of my IRA to make ends meet.

One of my previous managers at Wells Fargo (before I moved to IT) has now contacted me and asked me if I would consider coming back to a full-time position in her department. The salary level is very good, and I am tempted to accept it. My concern is how it would impact my Social Security benefits.

I know that between age 62-66 I would lose all of my benefits. But what about age 66 and after? Would I then begin to receive my benefits regardless of my earnings?

Thanks for any help.
