No. Both Social Security retirement and disability benefits are tied to an individual's contributions to the fund during the course of his or her working life.* There is no me…ans test, and no limit on household income. Your wife's income will not affect your ability to receive benefits, nor will it change the benefit amount. On the other hand, if you were born in 1943 or later and have not yet reached the full retirement age of 66, your personal earned income is restricted to $14,160 per year ($37,680 the year of your 66th birthday; no limit as of your birthday month and later), or the Social Security Administration will reduce your benefits for the next year by $1.00 for every $2.00 you earn over the limit. This can result in not receiving a Social Security check for several months, beginning in January of the following year. There is no restriction on unearned income at any time. *Spouses who were homemakers or didn't meet the required 40 credits to qualify for their own benefits may receive benefits based on the earning spouse's contributions.

Social Security retirement benefits are calculated for each individual, based on his or her own earnings, assuming both parties worked and accumulated the minimum 40 credits e…ach to qualify. Spouses who were homemakers or disabled may draw against the working spouse's record, and typically receive 32.5 - 50% of the spouse's monthly benefit. In 2010, the maximum individual benefit is $2,346 (or $4,692 for a couple). This assumes the person retires in 2010 at age 66, and has made the maximum FICA contribution every year since age 21, an unusual scenario. The average monthly payment at the beginning of 2010 was $1,164.00. Benefits are calculated based on the number of years worked, your 35 highest income-earning years, and the age at which you retire, as well as the total amount of all benefits paid and the total number of people receiving benefits. It would be impossible for us to calculate this number for you, and also impossible to predict any changes in your income or made to government policy between now and when you retire. You can get a rough estimate of projected retirement income using the SSA benefits calculator, accessible via Sources and Related Links, below.

Then, …your spouse can collect money on your account. They have rules about things - like you have to have been married for ten years. Or, the spouse has to be 65 to get it. If you aren't collecting benefits your spouse has to wait until they are 65 to collect it. If you have minor children, they get a check each month until they are of legal age. If you have no spouse and your children are grown, the children get a lump sum payment which is only a few hundred dollars.

Generally, you cannot get widow's or widower's benefits if you remarry before age 60. But remarriage after age 60 (or age 50 if you are disabled) will not prevent you from get…ting benefit payments based on your former spouse's work record. And at age 62 or older, you may get benefits based on your new spouse's work, if those benefits would be higher.
