With regard to your post:

"I'm 65 I will be 66 in December, I was told I can apply for benefits and keep working and not lose any benefits as long as my income from working is under 36,000 a year. Do I pay taxes on the ssi --- I think you mean Social Security, not SSI which is not Social Security) benefits, my wife is 60 and still working and has a higher paying job." Typically, yes, you will end up paying taxes on Social Security benefit when you have substantial other income. Which portion of SS is taxed and which is untaxed depends on your level of "combined income", which you can find here, to determine where your taxed amount will fall.
