Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
You made that amount of money from working?
You must pay taxes on your benefits if you file a federal tax return as an “individual” and your “combined income” exceeds $25,000. If you file a joint return, you must pay taxes if you and your spouse have “combined income” of more than $32,000. You can work and receive benefits without having your social security benefits reduced as you have already reached full retirement age. So that is not a factor.
Just checking back in, did you have any further questions?
