Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney and I look forward to assisting you.
It is only an issue if you are below full retirement age. For the year 2016, this limit on earned income is $15,720 ($1,310 per month). The amount goes up each year. If you are collecting Social Security retirement benefits before full retirement age, your benefits are reduced by $1 for every $2 you earn over the limit.
Beginning with the month you reach full retirement age, your earnings no longer reduce your benefits, no matter how much you earn.
