Last Modified:

We reduce spouse’s or surviving spouse’s benefits if you also get a retirement or disability pension based on your own federal, state, or local government work not covered by Social Security. This reduces your Social Security benefit by two-thirds of the amount of the government pension. This sometimes reduces a spouse’s benefit to zero.
