The fact that you started retirement at age 62 will have no bearing on income limits at age 66. If you were born between 1943 and 1954, you will reach full retirement age at… 66. Special income rules are applied for this year: You can earn $37,680 from the beginning of the year until your birth month. As of your birth month, the income limit is removed and you can earn any amount without having your benefits reduced.
There is no limit on earned income once you reach full retirement age. You will continue receiving your full benefit regardless of your work situation. If you were born befo…re 1943, full retirement age is 65; between 1943 and 1954, retirement age is 66; between 1955 and 1960, retirement age gradually increases to 67.
There is no limit on the amount of money you can earn while receiving Social Security benefits once you reach full retirement age (65 for people born before 1943). There is …no limit on the amount of unearned income a person can make at any age while collecting Social Security.
Earned Income If you are 62 years old in 2010, you will reach full retirement age at 66. Under 2010 SSA guidelines, people who have not yet reached full retirement age can ea…rn only $14,160 per year without incurring a penalty. For every $2.00 over the limit, $1.00 is withheld from benefits. There is an exception for the first year of early retirement, though (in this case, age 62). In the first year, there is no limit on the amount of income you can earn prior to the month you retire. You will not be penalized for pre-retirement income. For the remainder of the year, you will receive a full benefit check for each month in which you earn $1,180 or less (one-twelfth of $14,160). If you earn more than the maximum allowed, the Social Security Administration will withhold your monthly benefit check beginning in January of the following year until the overage is completely offset. Unearned Income There is no limit on passive (unearned) income you can receive from other sources, such as pension, annuities, capital gains, dividends, gifts, etc. There is also no limit to the amount of income other family or household members may earn. None of this money affects your retirement benefits, regardless of your age.
no earnings limits as long as 66 is your full retirement age, according to social security
Earnings limits in 2011 are unchanged from 2010. For the 2011 tax year, the answer depends on your age and whether you're drawing Social Security benefits for retirement or di…sability. 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. Any month a disabled person earns more than $720.00 is counted toward the nine-month trial work period, and may result in a continuing disability review (CDR).

Answer 1: Once you turn 65, you get your full Social Security benefits, no matter how much money you do or do not make.
Age 73 is well beyond what Social Security considers full retirement age. There is no limit to how much income you can earn while continuing to draw benefits. You will not be …penalized.
Yes this is possible BUT. You will have to make sure that this is done correctly by contacting your local SSA office for some assistance about this matter. If you're disabled …but able to engage in part-time work, SSDI allows earnings of up to $1,000 per month (2010) for most disabilities, or $1,640 per month for the blind under SGA guidelines (Successful Gainful Activity). If you earn more than this threshold, you may no longer be considered disabled. The Social Security Administration encourages disabled people to return to work if their disability allows, and provides numerous support programs, including vocational rehabilitation, as well as a nine-month (non-consecutive) trial period where full disability benefits continue while you test your ability to work. Trial work periods are triggered when your income rises above the "services" level of $720 or 80 hours work per month. Once the trial period ends, you enter an extended 36-month eligibility period during which benefits can be reinstated without a full evaluation should your disability interfere with continued successful employment. Additionally, you may continue to receive Medicare benefits at the standard premium rates for 93 months (7 years, 9 months) if you remain gainfully employed or employable after completing your last trial work month. The Social Security administration conducts Continuing Disability Reviews for most disabled people at varying intervals to determine if you are still disabled and remain eligible for benefits. Any work activity commenced within two years of becoming enrolled may trigger a review; however, SSDI will not conduct a review after two years if you enroll in their "Ticket to Work" program. If, at any time, you are considered medically improved and no longer qualify for disability benefits, you may be eligible for a period of extended coverage if you enroll in vocational rehabilitation.

The earnings limit for 2010 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 6…4, 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.
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.
At age 65 which is no longer the benchmark retirement age, you are subject to the earnings test until you reach the year of your normal retirement or full retirement age. Fo…r 2010 the amount would be 14,160. The earnings limit for workers who are younger than "full" retirement age (age 66 for people born in 1943 through 1954) will remain $14,160. (We deduct $1 from benefits for each $2 earned over $14,160.) The earnings limit for people turning 66 in 2010 still will be $37,680. (We deduct $1 from benefits for each $3 earned over $37,680 until the month the worker turns age 66.) There is no limit on earnings for workers who are "full" retirement age or older for the entire year.
