There is no limit on earned income once you reach full retirement age. If you were born before 1943, full retirement age is 65; between 1943 and 1954, retirement age is 66; between 1955 and 1960, retirement age gradually increases to 67.

There is no limit on the amount of money you can earn while receiving Social Security benefits once you reach full retirement age (65 for people born before 1943). There is …no limit on the amount of unearned income a person can make at any age while collecting Social Security.
As much as you want.
Yes, you can receive both a teacher's pension and Social Security benefits without the two affecting each other. Although administered by individual states, SSA operates und…er federal statutes and regulations. Your state of residence is irrelevant under benefit guidelines. Only earned income is counted toward the $14,160 annual cap in place between the ages of 62 and the year you reach full retirement age (typically 66, at present). The earning cap increases to $37,680 in January of the year you turn 66, and is lifted completely the month of your birthday. Afterward, there is no earned-income limit. Pension checks, 401k payouts, annuities, capital gains, and other investments are not counted toward the income limit at any time.
In most cases, people will not be able to receive social security disability if they move overseas. However, each case is different and there is no way to know until the S…ocial Security Administration makes a decision.
Yes. You can receive Social Security benefits while living in most foreign countries, and Canada is one of them.

Answer 1: Once you turn 65, you get your full Social Security benefits, no matter how much money you do or do not make.
If you do not report the income to SSI and the IRS you are committing a crime. You could be sent to jail on several charges plus, be required to pay back money received from S…SI and taxes owed. Not reporting the income can also cause you to be disallowed from receiving SSI in the future.
Yes, but there are limits to how much you can earn and what percentage of your retirement benefit you can receive if you retire prior to your full retirement age (usually 66).… Prior to your standard retirement age (66 for most of us), SSA will offset your earnings against above a set amount against your benefits; this might reduce your benefits or make you ineligible. When you reach your standard retirement age, you may earn as much as you wish without penalty. If you receive Social Security disability benefits, you can earn a maximum of $1,000 per month for most disabilities, or $1,640 per month if legally blind (2011). If you earn more than the approved amount, SSA will consider you to be engaged in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA), and may terminate your disability status.
Your spouse's income is not a factor.
In 2010, 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) if legally blind. Earning more t…han these limits would be considered engaging in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA), would trigger a continuing disability review, and likely result in termination of the person's disability status with Social Security. If you decide to return to work, the SSA allows nine non-consecutive months where earned income is unlimited; however, any month a disabled person earns more than $720.00 is counted toward the nine-month trial work period. Social Security disability benefits may be temporarily reduced if the person is also receiving Worker's Compensation or other public disability payments. The total amount of all sources of government disability income, including SSDI, cannot exceed 80% of the worker's average current earnings at the time of disability. SSDI benefits are based on the amount of money a worker paid in FICA (insurance) taxes during his or her working years, and is not means-tested. The Social Security Administration only cares about earned income as a measure of work performance. There is no limit on passive income a disabled person can receive from other sources, such as pension, annuities, capital gains, dividends, gifts, etc. There is also no limit to the amount of income other family or household members may earn. None of this money affects your SSDI disability benefits. Different rules apply for people who are on SSI (Supplemental Security Income, a form of welfare for the disabled) or a combination of SSDI and SSI, which is means-tested. Only the SSI portion of the person's income may change; the SSDI payments are affected exactly as detailed above.
is there a limit as to how much money a person on social security can accumulate
ALL MONEY that you receive must be declared to the Social Security Dept. If it is a new asset or some income from any source whatever, or even a winning in a lottery it must… be declared to Social Security ASAP. Obviously if you won $200,000 from Tattersalls, your fortnightly Social Security benefits would be reduced. Of course if you put it in the bank or bought shares with it, then Social Security would easily find out about it. So you cannot cheat on them, nor should you even think about it. Don't know how it is in other places around the world such as the answer above, but in the US, one can earn money while on social security. It depends on whether the individual has reached "full retirement age" as to whether and how much the earnings will be taxed. Check with your accountant.
