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.
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.
