You will be eligible for some payment as long as you have the 40 quarters required. Pixy is correct. The payment you would receive will be offset because of receipt of a pension based on work not covered under SS. The offset that applies to you (if you file for retirement benefits) is called the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP). Benefits end up being approximately 50% of what they would have been if you didn't get the pension.If the form they sent you shows a benefit estimate, the estimate DOES NOT take in to consideration any government or non-covered pensions you might receive. Don't use that figure in any calculations you might run.
