However, if you are younger than full retirement age and make more than the yearly earnings limit, the SSA will reduce your benefit.
Starting with the month you reach full retirement age,they will not reduce your benefits no matter how much you earn.
We use the following earnings limits to reduce your benefits: If you are under full retirement age for the entire year, we deduct $1 from your benefit payments for every $2 you earn above the annual limit.
For 2016 that limit is $15,720.
