From SSA.gov on the subject:

"

  • 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."

They do the math and hold back benefits in the next year to get this repayment.

Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback rating my assistance is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
