Maximum Social Security Benefit 2007Social Security incomeSocial Security is based on a sliding scale depending on your income, how long you work and at what age you retire. S…ocial Security benefits can automatically increase each year based on increases in the Consumer Price Index. Including a spouse increases your Social Security benefits by 1.5 times your individual estimated benefit. Please note that this calculator assumes that you have only one working spouse. Benefits could be different if your spouse worked and earned a benefit higher than one half of your benefit. If you are a married couple, and both spouses work, you may need to run the calculation twice - once for each spouse and their respective income. This calculator provides only an estimate of your benefits. The calculations use the 2007 FICA income limit of $97,500 with an annual maximum Social Security benefit of $25,392 per year for a single person and 1.5 times this amount for a married couple. To receive the maximum benefit would require earning the maximum FICA salary for nearly your entire career. You would also need to begin receiving benefits at your full retirement age of 66 or 67 (depending on your birthdate). Your actual benefit may be lower or higher depending on your work history and the complete compensation rules used by Social Security.

Can a person who has never worked collect Social Security if you have no spouse you are 18 and your mom is disabled?
Possibly. You can collect Social Security disability benefits under a parent's earnings record if you are determined to be disabled before age 22, even if you have never worke…d. At 18, you are no longer eligible to receive dependent benefits unless you are still in high school, in which case you would be able to receive payments through the end of the school year or until two months after your 19th birthday, whichever occurs first. You may also be entitled to back benefits if you qualified to collect payments while living with your disabled parent, but never applied. If you are disabled and have little or no income and few assets, you may be able to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and other forms of federal and state aid, however. Since your question is lacking a few important details, it would be a good idea to call the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213 or visit the local field office and explain your situation to a representative. If you do qualify for benefits (either monthly or a lump sum back payment), the sooner you act the better.
