Thanks for your question. Note, you can earn up to $34,400 per year before your benefits are effected. If you earn more than the limit, for every two dollars over the limit, your SS check is reduced by one dollar. Glad to help.

Does this include the social security I am receiving now or is it $34,000 plus my check? So I can earn $2800.00/month..

It is $34,400 in income not including your SS check so you should be fine. Glad to help. Please click the GREEN accept button. Thanks again.
