Ask a Social Security Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the earnings limit does apply to your child's mother.
The earnings limit does not apply to your child.
But if your child's mother earns over $15,120 per year, her benefit will be reduced $1 for every $2
I'm truly sorry that this is not the news you had hoped to hear. Please don't shoot the messenger!
What was answer?
The answer was that the earnings limit does apply to the child's mother
do you have ss statement to that effect?
are you there?
Yes, I am looking to see if I can find a publication for you
But, the only time there is no earnings limit when you receive social security benefits is when you are full retirement age
I am 74 and in full retirement age. Issue is theirr benefits derive from my funds
It's the same thing as when your spouse draws a benefit at age 62 off your record - that benefit is reduced if the spouse also works
The child's benefit does not have an earnings limit
but your spouse/child's parent does
I cannot find on the website where this is spelled out.
