    Social Security, Taxes
Will my Social Security benefits increase as I continue to pay taxes?
50% of people found this answer helpful

It can continue to increase. Social Security is paid out based on an average of your highest 35 years of earnings adjusted for inflation. And those years don't have to be a consecutive 35 years or the last 35 years. So, if your current income is knocking off years where you had lower or no income, than your Social Security benefit will continue to increase. On the other hand, if you have been maxing out Social Security for 35 years, then continuing to work and paying taxes won’t increase the benefit any further.
