Customer Question

I am not yet 62. I am still working. I have begun receiving social security from my deceased spouse. I am single. Do I have the same $25K cap income and half of SS benefits as I would if I were receiving my own benefit at age 66?

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

Yes you do. If you base income (your total other income + 1/2 of your social security) is more than 25K, 50% of your social security income will be taxable, if it is more than 34K, 85% of your social security will be taxable.
