If you were born between 1943 and 1954 and are at least 66 years old in 2010, you will reach full retirement age on your birth month under Social Security guidelines. In the y…ear you reach full retirement age, you can earn $37,680 annually, but for every $3.00 over the limit, $1.00 is withheld from your benefits until the month your reach full retirement age. The income cap is lifted completely and permanently the month you reach full retirement age.
There is no limit to the amount of money you can earn while receiving Social Security retirement benefits after you reach full retirement age. At 80, you are well clear of tha…t mark.
In the United States, the earliest you can collect Social Security retirement benefits is age 62, unless the SSA determines you're fully disabled. Disabled workers can earn …as much as $1,000 per month, or $1,640 per month if legally blind, without being considered engaged in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA); however, the Social Security Administration discourages people from working during the first 24 months following approval of a claim because it can cause your claim to be reevaluated and may result in termination of your disability status.
The Annual Earnings Test for 2011 hasn't been released yet, but budget projections indicate there may be no change from 2010. For the 2010 tax year, the answer depends on your… age and whether you're drawing Social Security benefits for retirement or disability. Retirement If you've reached full retirement age (65 for people born prior to 1943; 66 for people born between 1943 and 1954), there is no limit to how much you can earn. In the year you reach full retirement age, you can earn $37,680 annually, but for every $3.00 over the limit, $1.00 is withheld from your benefits until the month your reach full retirement age. If you are under full retirement age, you can earn $14,160 per year without incurring a penalty. For every $2.00 over the limit, $1.00 is withheld from benefits. Disability People on disability can earn up to $1,000 per month ($12,000 per year) for most disabilities, or $1,640 per month ($19,680 per year) for anyone legally blind. Earning more than these limits would be considered engaging in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA), would trigger a continuing disability review, and likely result in an end to the person's disability status with Social Security. If a disabled person attempts to return to work, SSDI allows a nine-month, non-consecutive trial work period during which there is no income limit, and no penalty for "excessive" earnings. Any month a disabled person earns more than $720.00 is counted toward the nine-month trial work period, however.
what is the maximum pension you can earn before reducing social security benefits at age 65
At age 47, the only forms of Social Security you can collect are survivors' benefits (if you are a widow or widower, or an ex-spouse raising minor children under age 16) or di…sability compensation. The two programs operate under different rules and regulations. Survivors' Benefits Earned income may affect the amount a survivor(s) can receive in benefits, but the formulas used for calculating these benefits are complex and dependent on many variables. You should discuss questions regarding survivors' benefits directly with the Social Security Administration. Disability Benefits In 2010, People on disability can earn up to $1,000 per month ($12,000 per year) for most disabilities, or $1,640 per month ($19,680 per year) if legally blind. Earning more than these limits would be considered engaging in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA), would trigger a continuing disability review, and likely result in termination of the person's disability status with Social Security. If you decide to return to work, the SSA allows nine non-consecutive months where earned income is unlimited; however, any month a disabled person earns more than $720.00 is counted toward the nine-month trial work period. You can speak with a Social Security Representative by calling 1-800-772-1213 Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00 pm. This is an automated information line, so be prepared to jump through some hoops before you reach a live representative.
Your unemployment benefits are a percentage of what you made while you were working. so if when you were working yo made a high salary, then your unemployment will be high.

Yes. It has been found, however, that for some reason some states (Virginia, for example ) reduce the amount of your unemployment compensation by the amount of your SS, which …they should not because they are 2 separate and distinct programs that have no bearing on the purpose of each other. You should check with your own state for its handling of the matter.
Yes. If you qualify for unemployment benefits in your state, you can also collect Social Security benefits as they are 2 separate and distinct programs that do not interfere w…ith each other.
Yes, if you own a private Disability insurance policy, the guidelines and benefits are accounted for separately from Social Security benefits. A person can be eligible to rece…ive both benefits. A private Disability policy can have two types of benefits: Base and Social Insurance benefit. Base benefits are payable regardless of Social Security benefits. Social Insurance benefits will offset dollar-for-dollar with any Social Security benefits you are eligible for. You can revert to your original Disability insurance policy, or policy summary to determine whether you have base or Social insurance benefits. You can also contact the insurance company your policy was written through to confirm this information.

Earnings limits for 2011 are unchanged from 2010. The earnings limit for 2011 for people below full retirement age (65 for people born before 1943; 66 for those born between …1943 and 1954) is $14,160. If you retire at age 63, you can earn any amount before retirement without incurring a penalty; however, once you retire, you can only earn $1,180 per month. If you earn more than the income limit, SSA will deduct $1.00 for every extra $2.00 earned. Your benefit check will be withheld beginning in January of the following year until the overage is completely offset. This can result in no Social Security income for a number of months, depending on how far you went over the limit.
The exact amount of your benefit is calculated based on the average of your 35 highest-earning years, which varies by individual. At age 62, you would receive 75% of the amoun…t that you would qualify to receive if you waited until your Full Retirement Age (66 if you were born between 1943 and 1954). The maximum retirement benefit is $2,346. This is based on a person retiring at age 66 in 2010, after making at least 35 years of maximum FICA contributions. At age 62, that person would receive $1,759.50 per month. The average monthly benefit for a retired worker is $1,164. At age 62, that benefit would be permanently reduced to $863.00 per month (not including periodic cost of living adjustments).
For the year 2010, if you did not reach your full retirement age, they will deduct $1 from your benefit for every $2 earned over $14,160. If you reach full retirement in 2010,… they will deduct $1 for every $3 earned over $37,680 (earned by the month before your birthday). After your full retirement birthday, you can earn an unlimited amount any time after your birthday. See the Related Link below for full details.
