When can I make unlimited money and still receive Social Security?
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.

As much as you want.
Yes. You can receive Social Security benefits while living in most foreign countries, and Canada is one of them.
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.
Since you were born after 1943, you won't reach full retirement age until you are 66, in April 2012. If you work while drawing Social Security benefits, you can only earn $1…4,160 in 2011 without incurring a reduction in benefits. For every $2.00 earned above that amount, your benefits will be reduced by $1.00, and your 2012 checks will be withheld until the overage is completely offset. Beginning in January 2012, you can earn $37,680 per year, and your benefits will be reduced by $1.00 for every $3.00 earned above that limit. This will probably not affect you because the cap is lifted beginning in the month you reach full retirement age (April 2012). There are no limits to how much you can earn once you reach full retirement age.
Answer 1: Once you turn 65, you get your full Social Security benefits, no matter how much money you do or do not make.
Your spouse's income is not a factor.
Once you reach retirement age, your Social Security Disability benefits convert to regular retirement benefits, payable at the same rate. You cannot collect an additional amou…nt due to disability. It is possible that you could qualify for the SSI supplemental security income, which is based on disability and income, in addition to your month Social Security benefit, but this is a different program and is not administered by the SSA. The amount of SSI paid is adjusted monthly based on what the person was able to earn in that month.
Yes this is possible BUT. You will have to make sure that this is done correctly by contacting your local SSA office for some assistance about this matter. If you're disabled …but able to engage in part-time work, SSDI allows earnings of up to $1,000 per month (2010) for most disabilities, or $1,640 per month for the blind under SGA guidelines (Successful Gainful Activity). If you earn more than this threshold, you may no longer be considered disabled. The Social Security Administration encourages disabled people to return to work if their disability allows, and provides numerous support programs, including vocational rehabilitation, as well as a nine-month (non-consecutive) trial period where full disability benefits continue while you test your ability to work. Trial work periods are triggered when your income rises above the "services" level of $720 or 80 hours work per month. Once the trial period ends, you enter an extended 36-month eligibility period during which benefits can be reinstated without a full evaluation should your disability interfere with continued successful employment. Additionally, you may continue to receive Medicare benefits at the standard premium rates for 93 months (7 years, 9 months) if you remain gainfully employed or employable after completing your last trial work month. The Social Security administration conducts Continuing Disability Reviews for most disabled people at varying intervals to determine if you are still disabled and remain eligible for benefits. Any work activity commenced within two years of becoming enrolled may trigger a review; however, SSDI will not conduct a review after two years if you enroll in their "Ticket to Work" program. If, at any time, you are considered medically improved and no longer qualify for disability benefits, you may be eligible for a period of extended coverage if you enroll in vocational rehabilitation. For more details on working while disabled, consult the SSDA Red Book, available via link socialsecurity.gov/redbook/
How much money can you make each year and still draw full Social Security benefits at the age of 77?
At the age of 77 there is no limitation on the amount of income you can earn in addition to SS.

In 2010, earnings averaging more than $1,000 per month for most disabilities, or $1,640 per month if you are legally blind, will be considered "substantial gainful activity" (…SGA). If you have been on disability for less than 24 months, any earned income may trigger a continuing disability review. Also, earnings above $720 per month are counted against the allowance for your nine-month trial work period if you ever return to full-time work. The trial work period (TWP) allows benefits to continue without interruption while you attempt to reenter the workplace or become self-employed (like a safety net).
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.
It depends on how much you've earned working a public job and paying into social security. I don't think there is a set amount. But, don't expect to get rich.
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.

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.
