Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. Are you asking how much you may earn through employment before your social security survivor benefit is decreased for having earned too much?

2. What is your present age?
