Yes, unfortunately this is the case. It's a pro-rated amount after your AGI exceeds a certain threshold. The generally increased per year so you can check the IRS web page or check the social security web page for the AGI limitation.

Charles, I think you answered a different question;

What I think the original question was, is: "Do you pay FICA taxes on earned income after retiring (retirement meaning: collecting a SS benefit)?".

I think the answer is simply: yes.

Are there other ways that work can increase your benefits?Yes. Each year we review the records for all Social Security recipients who work. If your latest year of earnings turns out to be one of your highest years, we refigure your benefit and pay you any increase due.
