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. Social 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.

When you are awarded Social Security Disability why do you have to repay a portion of your benefit to the insurance carrier when you paid LTD benefits through your employer with after tax dollars?

There are two circumstances in which you would have to repay benefits once you qualify for Social Security disability benefits:The first is if you own an individual Disability policy that includes a Social Insurance offset benefit. Social Insurance benefits are benefits that the insurance company pays on a disability claim, but will offset dollar-for-dollar with social security benefits.The second is if someone receiving benefits from a group Disability policy is eligible for social security benefits. Every group policy will have a provision in the contract that explains how benefits will be handled when a claimant is eligible for social security benefits. As much as group policies are great because they are less expensive and usually can be obtained without medical underwriting, the contract itself is not as good. In a sense, you get what you pay for. Most group disability policies will offset dollar-for-dollar with any social security benefits received, including personal and family benefits. In many situations the amount you will receive from the actual disability insurance company will be minimal.More specific to the question being asked - it can take a long time for social security benefits to be approved and paid. Therefore, many times the insurance companies will pay out benefits during months in which a claimant was technically eligible for social security benefits. Once the social security benefits are approved and paid, the claimant will be expected to repay the insurance company for all benefits paid that would otherwise have been offset. A claimant will not be expected to repay benefits for months in which they were not eligible for social security disability benefits.

Will I lose my retirement accounts or payments from social security if I file for bankruptcy?

Generally, no. Retirement accounts that are ERISA-qualified aren't considered property of an estate and cannot be taken. Social Security benefits are generally protected from assignment, or garnishment for debts in bankruptcy. The Social Security Administration's responsibility for protecting benefits against legal process and assignment usually ends when the beneficiary is paid. Once paid, the benefits continue to be protected only as long as they can be identified as Social Security benefits. For example, money in a bank account where the "only" deposits into the account are direct deposits of Social Security benefits are "identifiable" and generally protected.

Can a co-signers Social Security entitlements be garnished and made to pay a car in full after repossession?

ssa-custhelp Section 207 of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 407) protects Social Security benefits from assignment, levy, or garnishment. However, the law provides five exceptions: **child support and tax debt and other govt. debts.** The Social Security Administration's responsibility for protecting benefits against legal process and assignment usually ends when the beneficiary is paid. However, once paid, benefits continue to be protected under section 207 of the Act only as long as they are identifiable as Social Security benefits. This applies to money in a bank account where the only payments into the account are from direct deposit of Social Security benefits. NOTE: Supplemental Security Income payments cannot be levied or garnished.

At what age can Americans begin to receive social security benefits?

As long as you have paid into Social Security (FICA) for at least 40 quarters (about 10 years) you could be eligible to receive benefits as early as age 62. Full retirement for Social Security is between 65 and 67 years of age dependent upon your year of birth. If you take benefits at age 62 those will be in a reduced amount for the rest of your life. It's always best to wait until your full retirement age (or later) until you start drawing benefits so that you can receive the maximum amount that you are entitled to.
