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.

If income is earned in the year of full retirement age, the 2008 income threshold is $36,120. If income is earned prior to the year of full retirement age, the 2008 inco…me threshold is $13,560. After those thresholds are reached, social security benefits are reduced. The excess earnings reduction is $1 of Social Security benefits for every $2 of earnings over the lower threshold for people who are not yet in the year they reach full retirement age. In the year a person reaches full retirement age, the excess earnings reduction is $1 of Social Security benefits for every $3 of earnings over the higher threshold. During the month of reaching full retirement age and thereafter, beneficiaries can earn an unlimited amount without a reduction in their Social Security benefits.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
No, Pennsylvania is not one of the fourteen states that taxes Social Security benefits.
Your wife earnings will NOT be counted as a part of your earnings for the social security earnings test.
On United States Social Security Disability income how much monthly income can you make before having to report it and possibly lose benefits?
You are legally required to report all earned income on your IRS tax forms, which automatically makes the information available to the Social Security Administration. The SS…A asks that you notify them of any work attempt, regardless of income earned. If you have been disabled less than 24 months, your work activity may trigger a continuing disability review. Having said that, people on SSD are permitted to earn an average of $1,000 per month or less ($1,640 per month if legally blind) in 2010 without being considered engaged in "substantial gainful activity" (SGA). Different rules apply for people on Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or a combination of SSD and SSI. If in doubt, check with your local Social Security office.
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.
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.
I don't know I just like to answer things
Not until the 401K money is withdrawn. The question should read, "Are 401k contributions......"
