    Dear Liz, I am a retired CSRS. I fall under the windfall act.I can not find any information on my question. Does my S.S. account stop counting my years of payed in at age 66 or 70 when I will start collecting ?My birth date is 3-1-52. I will have paid in to the system at 66 for (12-31-18) 20 years. I am still working and will be at less till I am 75. Since my birth day is on the 1ST that will only give me 2 months of that year to pay in to the system, so i will only be able to get 3 more years credit?
    My next question is what is the formula after age 70 (still working) that my check will see an increase, not counting COLA.
