If you are younger than full retirement age during all of 2012, SSA will deduct $1 from your benefits for each $2 you earned above $14,640.

There is another law that says in the first year you start getting Social Security checks, you are guaranteed a benefit payment in any month you earn under a monthly earnings threshold. That monthly threshold is always one-twelfth of the yearly limit — or $1,220 ($14,640 divided by 12).
