For federal employees eligible to retire but less than age 62, you can receive a supplement until age 62 that will partially compensate for Social Security. But it is subject to the same earnings test as Social Security if you continue to work beyond retirement (e.g., earnings are limited to about $15K) unless you are retired law enforcement in which case there is no limit. I suppose some states could have a similar benefit but since she worked for the same state as you, I assume you would know about it. But sometimes, there are some obscure benefits for law enforcement that are not available to the other employees.

Interesting... She claims to be getting in retirement almost as much as she was earning, so she wouldn't pass that means test. Especially not if she also were claiming the profits from her new at-home business.

How well to you know her? Is she the type that would take advantage of a loophole or enforcement gap in SSI? Really disgraceful though, kids today are being told there probably won't be anything for them when they get old because there were people like her who abused the system.

Not terribly well. Seems everyone in this town is sort of a grifter, though, so it wouldn't surprise me. She was telling me I should take advantage of this, too, without really explaining what it was. I said I hope EVERYONE doesn't, or there won't be anything left by the time I get there!
