In every issue of The Retirement Advisor newsletter , we cover the latest Social Security news. On page 4 of the June 2009 issue we tell how early retirees can "reset the clock" on your Social Security benefits if you go back to work so you can get the higher monthly payment when you eventually decide to retire.
