Which administration collects taxes from workers to pay benefits and living expenses to persons covered under the program when they retire?
The answer depends on your individual circumstances. If you are retired and Social Security benefits are your only source of income, you may file, but generally will not be …taxed. If you also receive income from sources other than Social Security, your benefits will be taxed if your total taxable income exceeds a certain threshold. The formula is very simple. Your adjusted gross income (AGI), meaning income from all taxable sources, will fall into one of the following categories. Depending on your personal situation, you could be taxed on 0% of your Social Security benefits, on 50% of your benefits, or on 85% of your benefits. For a single taxpayer the base amount (cap) is $25,000.If your total AGI is $25-34,000, you will pay tax on 50% of your Social Security benefitsIf your total AGI is above $34,000, you will pay tax on 85% of your benefits For married couples filing jointly, the base amount is $32,000If your total AGI is $32-$44,000, you will pay tax on 50% of your Social Security benefitsIf your total AGI is above $44,000, you will pay tax on 85% of your benefits

An otherwise eligible convicted felon may receive Social Security disability or retirement benefits when he or she is not incarcerated for more than 30 days and has no outstan…ding warrants. Social Security will not pay cash benefits to anyone living in a prison, jail, nursing home or other tax-supported facility; however, if the person is eligible for retirement benefits under SSA guidelines, he or she may receive them after release. Payees are not entitled to back benefits for the time spent incarcerated. Yes, yes they can.
Yes you can choose to receive your monthly social security check in the mail if that is really what you want to do.
If nothing is done to change Social Security what can a 26-year-old individual in 2006 expect to receive in retirement benefits from the program?
Benefits for all retirees could be cut by twenty-six percent and continue to be reduced every year thereafter by the year 2040.
Yes, you can collect from them both at the same time, as long as you qualified for each of them.
You can receive social security benfits at the age of 65 or if you were born after 1959, 67. This is said to possibly increase with the increasing number of older individuals …in our country and the dwindling number of younger individuals putting money into social security.

Yes, unfortunately this is the case. It's a pro-rated amount after your AGI exceeds a certain threshold. The generally increased per year so you can check the IRS web page or …check the social security web page for the AGI limitation. 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.
