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.

Typically, a disabled worker may expect to receive $1,067 in disability payments every month. However, if the claimant has a spouse and a child, the average monthly social sec…urity benefits may increase up to $1,813. Monthly SSI benefits are lower and single beneficiaries may receive $674 monthly but for couples, the payment may increase to $1,011. In 2010, the maximum individual benefit is $2,346, which assumes 35 working years paying the maximum FICA contribution. A disabled person with a family can receive a maximum family benefit for a qualifying spouse and children of $4,222.80. These numbers are unrealistic for most people, however. In 2010, the average disability benefit is $1,065.90. The average payment for qualifying minor dependents is $317.10 each, terminating the month before the child turns 18 (or 19 if still in high school). Under certain circumstances, the spouse of a disabled individual may also collect a small monthly stipend, averaging about $286.70 per month. The family maximum is 150-180% of the disabled worker's benefit.

You can do the following quick computation to determine whether some of your benefits may be taxable: First, add one-half of the total Social Security benefits you received to all your other income, including any tax exempt interest and other exclusions from income. Then, compare this total to the base amount for your filing status, if the total is more than your base amount, then some of your benefits may be taxable.

Maximum Social Security Benefit 2007Social Security incomeSocial Security is based on a sliding scale depending on your income, how long you work and at what age you retire. S…ocial Security benefits can automatically increase each year based on increases in the Consumer Price Index. Including a spouse increases your Social Security benefits by 1.5 times your individual estimated benefit. Please note that this calculator assumes that you have only one working spouse. Benefits could be different if your spouse worked and earned a benefit higher than one half of your benefit. If you are a married couple, and both spouses work, you may need to run the calculation twice - once for each spouse and their respective income. This calculator provides only an estimate of your benefits. The calculations use the 2007 FICA income limit of $97,500 with an annual maximum Social Security benefit of $25,392 per year for a single person and 1.5 times this amount for a married couple. To receive the maximum benefit would require earning the maximum FICA salary for nearly your entire career. You would also need to begin receiving benefits at your full retirement age of 66 or 67 (depending on your birthdate). Your actual benefit may be lower or higher depending on your work history and the complete compensation rules used by Social Security.
For the year 2010, When you have one employer the amount of FICA (OASDI) Old Age Survivor and Disability Insurance) for your social security would stop once your wages with th…e withheld social security amount reach 106800 and social security amount withheld would be 6621.60. You do NOT have any cap LIMIT on the MEDICARE insurance contribution amount so the 1.45% amount will continue to be withheld on your earnings over the above limit and will be matched by your employer at the 1.45% amount for a total 3.90% of all of your earned income for the year.

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.
