What is the maximum social security benefit?
No; Social Security tax (i.e., FICA) is collected from earned income only.
If you're talking about retirement benefits, you should receive your first check or deposit in the month following your first month of eligibility; benefits are always paid in… arrears. If you're talking about disability benefits, there is a five month waiting period, so you should receive your first check or deposit in the sixth month after the date disability was approved. Benefits are paid according to the birth date of the person whose earning record is being used to issue payment: 1st - 10th.....................second Wednesday of month 11th - 20th...................third Wednesday of month 21st - 31st....................fourth Wednesday of month SSDI + SSI...................third day of month Approved prior to 1997...third day of month SSI only........................first day of month If the regularly scheduled payment falls on a holiday, the benefit will be issued one business day prior to the usual date.
No. Social Security benefits are non-transferable, so they can't be garnished, attached or levied by most creditors. Only the federal government can garnish Social Security ch…ecks, and only for limited purposes, like payment of back taxes, alimony, and child support, debt to other federal agencies, and some victim compensation awards. Generally, they withhold only a portion of the benefit to help satisfy these obligations (e.g., maximum of 15% for past due taxes).
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.

The answer depends on your age and whether you're referring to Social Security retirement or disability benefits. If you reach full retirement age this year, the earning cap… will be lifted on the month of your birthday. If you have earned income exceeding $37,680 for the year, your benefits will be reduced by $1.00 for every $3.00 earned beyond that amount. If you are a year or more below full retirement age, the maximum earning is only $14,160, and your benefits will be reduced by $1.00 for every $2.00 earned beyond that amount. The excess income is fully deducted from your benefits beginning in January and continuing until the overage is completely offset -- in other words, you may not receive a Social Security check at all for several months, depending on how far over the maximum you've gone. On the plus side, you probably continued paying into the Social Security fund while you worked, which can result in an increase in future monthly benefits paid. Maximum Earnings, 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.
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 se…curity. 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.
Can back child support be withheld from social security benefits
In 2010, the maximum individual benefit is $2,346. This assumes the person retires at the full retirement age of 66, and has made the maximum FICA contribution every year sinc…e age 21, an unusual scenario. The average monthly payment at the beginning of 2010 was $1,164.00.
