Are there conditions where your benefits are not payable?
There are certain conditions under which your retirement, auxiliary, survivors, and disability benefits are not payable or are payable only in part. This is true even if you meet all of the "entitlement" requirements. You may do things (or fail to do things) that require us to withhold all or some part of your benefits. For example, if you are entitled to retirement insurance benefits and you work, we may make deductions from your benefits and from others entitled to benefits on your record.
The chart in §1851 summarizes the events that may require withholding of part or all of the various types of benefits.
