    Please respond to my question that I have tried to get answered all year. I withdrew a ONE time funds from my IRA account in 2017 to purchase a condo for my son. Unaware that not only the 10% and tax bracket change penalty but also would incur further reduction on my monthly SS for a said one year. This being a one time event, will my monthly SS automatically go back to the previous after this year or do I have to report it in some form? This was not a work related income but my own money for a one time withdrawal. Please respond and advice on what I need to do. Thank you kindly!
