What happens to my social security benefits if I start drawing them at age 65 but my full retirement age is 66 and I continue to work?

I make aprox 31,500 annually and would like to be able to start my benefits early

The day you start collecting Social Security retirement, you will only be able to make about $13,500 a year. For every dollar above that, they deduct a dollar from your benefits. Check with SS office for more exact details.

The longer you wait, the bigger the check. If you start collecting them early, you may suffer a reduction in benefit of 25% or more for the rest of your life. Read more on: http://www.kiplinger.com/magazine/archives/what-you-need-to-know-about-social-security.html
