Ask Social Security Questions and Get Answers ASAP
I assuming that your nephew is getting Supplemental Security income (SSI) that is based on his needs rather on his working history.
The maximum benefits he may get is $735.
As that amount is based on his needs as determined by the SSA - any income he gets might potentially affect the amount of SSI he receives.
The general rule is that Social Security reduces the amount of your monthly SSI benefit by the amount of recipient's monthly income.The SSA does not count the first $65 of earned income plus one–half of the amount over $65. Therefore, they reduce SSI benefits only $1 for every $2 earned over $65.In your situation out of $100 - the first $65 are not counted. and out of next $35 - SSI benefits are reduced by $17.5That means your nephew should have reduction $735 - $17.5 = $717.5I suggest to visit the SSA office and provide all required documents regarding your nephew's income - and they will adjust reduction.
