What is the maximum amount of income you can have and receive social security benefits?
After "full retirement" age (currently 66 for people reaching retirement this year) there is no limit. I am 67 and still earning in the six figure range and get full social security. People taking retirement at 62 can earn up to $14,640 without any reduction in their benefits; for income over that limit, benefits are reduced by $0.50 for every $1.00 earned. The ammount you lose is reduced on a sliding basis until at full retirement age there is no reduction.

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 income thr…eshold 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.
For 2008, $102,000.
