Yes it is possible that from 50% to 85% of your SSB can become taxable income on your 1040 federal income tax return.

It would depend on your level of withholding and whether or not you are taking taxable distributions from your annuities.

Charles Coker,CPA Charles, I think you answered a different question; What I think the original question was, is: "Do you pay FICA taxes on earned income after retiring (retirement meaning: collecting a SS benefit)?". I think the answer is simply: yes. Are there other ways that work can increase your benefits? Yes. Each year we review the records for all Social Security recipients who work. If your latest year of earnings turns out to be one of your highest years, we refigure your benefit and pay you any increase due.
