SOCIAL SECURITY

Chapter 32 Offset
The receipt of both a Social Security allowance and a Massachusetts public pension may result in the reduction of the amount received from Social Security in most circumstances. A Massachusetts retirement allowance cannot be reduced as the result of the receipt of any other benefit. However, federal law requires the reduction of Social Security benefits received when an individual is entitled to both benefits. This reduction is mandated in a variety of circumstances.

Individuals who are eligible to receive benefits from a Massachusetts contributory retirement system and from the federal Social Security Administration, as a result of their own employment, or a combination of their own employment and benefits as a spouse or a surviving spouse, should contact their local Social Security Office for more detailed information.
