What's the impact of premium conversion on my Social Security benefits?

Premium conversion may slightly reduce the Social Security benefit you will receive upon retirement. The extent of the impact depends upon several factors:

  • the retirement system that you participate in;
  • whether your salary exceeds the Social Security wage base; and
  • the number of years left until your retirement.
