I started receiving Social Security, while still working, at age 66. In 2009, 2010 and 2011, I made more money than I ever had before. How often does the Social Security Administration recalculate benefits based on your earnings?

The Social Security Administration is committed to recalculating your earnings and benefits each year after receiving your tax returns. However, it may take a long time for the agency to receive the returns. For example, in 2014, SSA is receiving returns from the 2012 tax year. Thus it can take as long as two years for a benefit to be adjusted. If you feel your benefit hasn't been adjusted and should be, contact the SSA directly at (800) 772-1213.
