Capital gains are not considered wages. Therefore, they have no affect on eligibility of social security.

Social Security was created as part of the New Deal package in response to the great depression. The depression made it clear that senior citizens and the disabled are esp…ecially vulnerable populations, so the program was designed to act as a protection for those populations. The first Social Security payments were not made until the great depression had already ended.
The Social Security Administration regularly adjusts the amount that a person receiving SS benefits. Complete information concerning all SS issues can be obtained a…t Social Security Online.
No effect at present. Social security trust funds are not being used in the bailout. Of course, there is an ongoing concern that the funds in social security are in…sufficient to meet future demands. It would be difficult to be more precise than this, because the government will be buying "troubled assets" that may have value in the future.
. . . On the nature of the economic order, my assumption is that in this country we believe in a competitive economy with differential awards . . . Social security itsel…f can, and in this country, does pay benefits in differing amounts to take account of differences in lost earnings. Yet at the same time it recognizes the actual or presumptive needs of beneficiaries. If we can agree on the kind of economic order we want, we still have the difficult job of reckoning with the forces on which its success depends . . . Thus we must consider the nation's productivity in deciding what social security benefits will be paid and under what conditions. Consider also, in a competitive society their effect on wage rates, on mobility of workers, on the business cycle and full employment. Mr. Altmeyer
Of course..it's admirable as well as a number of disabilities can be worked through via smart management of money...just make sure if your gains pass your income limits that y…ou report it to the Social Security Administration or you could face fines/charges (after the appropriate chance to state a case etc/respond)

Absolutely. It affects her Social Security only.
yes you would capatalize Social Security in a sentence.
There is a limit for income from working you have not reached your full-retirement age . You can make as much money as you want to from sources such as interest, investment in…come, rental income, etc. See Sources and related links for details.
In general, the size of our Social Security retirement checks will depend on your lifetime earnings record and the age that you begin collecting your benefits. If you star…t collecting payments prior to reaching your Full Retirement Age (FRA) which for the most part is 66 or 67, depending on your year of birth, the amount of any work earnings beyond a certain threshold ($15,480 in 2014) will lead to a reduction in your benefit amount. However, Social Security's definition of earnings counts amounts you earn from working as an employee or net income from your self-employment, but not dividends and/or capital gains from your investments. So in a nutshell, dividends and capital gains do not affect your Social Security payments.
A number cannot be capitalized.
No, except at the beginning of a sentence because it is not a proper noun.
That depends, if you're below the maximum amount of income that you can earn for that tax year, then it won't trigger a claw back of some of your social security. On the other… hand, if your income is over the maximum amount you're allowed to earn, then the government will take the appropriate deduction from your social security.
It depends but usually not. People get this really confused but NO YOU DON'T CAPITALIZE SOCIAL SECURITY
IMO, yes it should be. From my experience, "social security" is not yet used as a generic term for all such support programs for other countries, so, since it refers only to o…ur own, it should be considered a proper noun, and thus be capitalized.
