AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

Does the Windfall Elimination Provision affect me if I contributed to Social Security for over 35 years and then took a government job not covered by Social Security at age 57?


Likely no, because you paid Social Security tax on 30 years of substantial earnings. For more information on the Windfall Elimination Provision, please visit http://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10045.pdf.
