The amount of monthly earnings we consider to be SGA depends on the nature of your disability. The Social Security Act specifies a higher SGA amount for persons who meet the definition of blindness described by the law. For details on our rules about earnings and blindness, see SPECIAL RULES FOR PERSONS WHO ARE BLIND.

Specifically, the Social Security earnings test only considers earned income. This mainly refers to income from a job, self-employment income such as consulting or freelancing work, or income from. However, the earnings test under Social Security applies to retirement benefits, and so impacts on disability benefits differ from what you'll see below.

Why's it smart to keep working and claim. To be clear, the earnings test applies only to earned income, not annuities, gifts and other items. Earned income is money that you make by working. Social Security has a clear and simple definition of earned income: “gross wages or net self-employment income”.

But if you work and collect benefits prior to FRA, you'll be subject to Social Security's earnings test. The earnings test dictates how much money you're entitled to earn.

In a nutshell, the Social Security earnings test applies to people who have applied for Social Security retirement benefits but have not yet reached their full retirement age. However, there are several different parts of the Social Security earnings test.

To be clear, Social Security is not intended to be retirees' only source of income. The SSA says that Social Security retirement benefits replace about 40% of the average retiree's income.

Beneficiaries may receive Social Security retirement, dependent, or survivor benefits and work at the same time.

Under the earnings test, we will reduce a beneficiary’s monthly benefits by the amount of his or her excess earnings if the beneficiary is under or in the year of FRA. How the earnings test works The retirement earnings test applies only to people below normal retirement age (NRA).

Social Security withholds benefits if your earnings exceed a certain level, called a retirement earnings test exempt amount, and if you are under your NRA.

One of two different exempt amounts apply — a lower amount in years before the year you attain NRA. With your free, personal my Social Security account, you can receive personalized estimates of future benefits based on your real earnings, see your latest Statement, and review your earnings history.

It even makes it easy to request a replacement Social Security Card or check the status of an application, from anywhere. Create an Account. In the years before you reach FRA, your income is subject to more onerous withholding: $1 for every $2 in earnings above $18, For a quick check on how work income affects your retirement benefits, use Social Security’s Retirement Earnings Test Calculator.

You can get Social Security retirement benefits and work at the same time. However, if you are younger than full retirement age and make more than the yearly earnings limit, we will reduce your benefit. Starting with the month you reach full retirement age, we will not reduce your benefits no matter how much you earn.

En español | No. Social Security only counts income from employment towards the retirement earnings kinds of income — including income from rental properties, lawsuit payments, inheritances, pensions, investment dividends, IRA distributions and interest — will not cause benefits to be reduced.

Social Security Retirement Earnings Test: How Earnings Affect Benefits Congressional Research Service Summary Under the Social Security Retirement Earnings Test (RET), the monthly benefit of a Social Security beneficiary who is below full retirement age (FRA) is reduced if he or she has earnings that exceed an annual Size: KB.

Your monthly benefit is $1, and you earn $25, annually through a part-time job. For the year, Social Security withholds $3, from your payments (half of the $6, by which you topped the earnings limit).

That works out to months of benefits lost, which Social Security rounds up to three. For those unfamiliar with the Social Security earnings test, the general idea is that if you claim Social Security benefits prior to full retirement age and you work while you’re entitled to those benefits, the earnings test can result in all or part of your benefits being withheld if your earnings exceed a certain threshold.

Social Security has an annual earnings limit, a rule that may significantly reduce your benefit payments if you collect them in early retirement (although the withholding is made up after you reach full retirement age).

The annual earnings limit may apply only if you’re collecting Social Security benefits and haven’t yet reached full retirement age (currently 66). The Social Security Administration always applies the annual earnings test first. Based on that test, the agency temporarily withholds $1 of a worker's benefits for every $2 earned over $17, in In a year the worker hits full retirement age.

During your first year of retirement, different rules apply to your income limits as you determine your Social Security benefits.

Under this rule, you don't have to count income that you earn before your retirement date toward your annual earnings limit. Instead, a month-by-month earnings test will apply. Mike Piper is the author of the book “Social Security Made Simple.”In addition to explaining how Social Security works, he recently created an interactive calculator, Open Social Security Author: Harry Sit.

And for every $2 you earn over the threshold in earned income, $1 of Social Security benefits is suspended. Jane is $12, over .
