What would you like to do?
Is there a limit as to how much income you can make while collecting social security benefits?
Depending on the year you were born, there is no limit. From 2014 on, you can only keep 41,400 dollars before they deduct one dollar for every three dollars you earn above this amount.

No, Pennsylvania is not one of the fourteen states that taxes Social Security benefits.
Once you pass full retirement age, which would have been 65 for you, there is no cap on annual earnings. You can earn as much as you like without fear of reduced benefits.
Yes. If you qualify for unemployment benefits in your state, you can also collect Social Security benefits as they are 2 separate and distinct programs that do not interfere w…ith each other.
No. Distributions from a 401k are unearned income for Social Security purposes, and do not affect the benefit amount you receive under regular SS retirement or SSDI (disabilit…y) programs. Only SSI (Supplemental Security Income, a form of welfare) payments are means-tested and offset by either earned or unearned income.
If you have accumulated enough work credits (typically 40) the earliest you can collect Social Security retirement benefits is 62. At that age, your monthly payment would be a…bout 75% of the amount you would receive by waiting to retire at SSA's full retirement age. Full retirement age: Born before 1943...................65Born between 1943-1954........66Born in 1955.........................66 + 2 monthsBorn in 1956.........................66 + 4 monthsBorn in 1957.........................66 + 6 monthsBorn in 1958.........................66 + 8 monthsBorn in 1959.........................66 + 10 monthsBorn in 1960 or later...............67 You can receive Social Security disability benefits at any age if you have sufficient work credits (on your own or a spouse's work record, or on a parent's work record if disabled before age 22) and SSA determines your condition prevents you from engaging in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA).
Yes, if you own a private Disability insurance policy, the guidelines and benefits are accounted for separately from Social Security benefits. A person can be eligible to rece…ive both benefits. A private Disability policy can have two types of benefits: Base and Social Insurance benefit. Base benefits are payable regardless of Social Security benefits. Social Insurance benefits will offset dollar-for-dollar with any Social Security benefits you are eligible for. You can revert to your original Disability insurance policy, or policy summary to determine whether you have base or Social insurance benefits. You can also contact the insurance company your policy was written through to confirm this information.
Yes. Your income is limited in several ways. First, at age 62 you would receive approximately 75% of the retirement benefit you would be eligible for if you waited until full …retirement age (most likely 66) to file. Second, although you may draw Social Security benefits and work at the same time, your earned income will be limited to $1,180 per month ($14,160/year) until you reach full retirement age. If you exceed the limit, SSA will withhold $1.00 in benefits for every $2.00 earned over the maximum. You would not receive any checks or deposits the following year until the overage is completely offset.
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 earn 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.
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.
There is no limit on the amount of money you can earn while receiving Social Security retirement benefits after you reach full retirement age. At 70, you are well clear of tha…t mark. Full retirement ages Born before 1943.............65 years Born between 1943-1954..66 years The full retirement age will gradually increase each year until it reaches 67 years for people born in 1960 or later. Early retirement and earnings If retired below full retirement age: $14,160 per year, and for every $2 over that limit, $1 is withheld from benefits. In the year you reach full retirement age (prior to your birthday): $37,680 per year, and for every $3 over the limit, $1 is withheld from benefits until the month you reach full retirement age.

Yes. It has been found, however, that for some reason some states (Virginia, for example ) reduce the amount of your unemployment compensation by the amount of your SS, which …they should not because they are 2 separate and distinct programs that have no bearing on the purpose of each other. You should check with your own state for its handling of the matter.
Social Security only considers earned income from an employer or self-employment, up to a cap of $106,800.00, to count as income for their purposes. Typical sources of unear…ned income include: inheritancepensions (from other sources)income from investmentsincome from annuitiesIRA distributionsinterest earned401(k) distributionsproceeds from the sale of a home or other property other government paymentsetc. These sources of financial support do not affect the amount of your monthly benefit check, nor are they subject to being taxed under FICA.
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.

For the year 2010, if you did not reach your full retirement age, they will deduct $1 from your benefit for every $2 earned over $14,160. If you reach full retirement in 2010,… they will deduct $1 for every $3 earned over $37,680 (earned by the month before your birthday). After your full retirement birthday, you can earn an unlimited amount any time after your birthday. See the Related Link below for full details.
