Will you lower my Social Security benefits if I get a pension from work not covered by Social Security?

When you get a retirement or disability pension from work not covered by Social Security, we may figure your Social Security benefits using a different formula. This lowers your Social Security benefit. We do this whether your pension comes from work you did for a U.S. government agency or in a foreign country.
