HI, MY NAME’S LANE - I hold a law degree (J.D.), with concentration in Tax Law, Estate law & Corporate law, an MBA in finance, a BBA, and CFP & CRPS (Chartered Retirement Plans Specialist) designations, as well - I’ve been providing financial, Social Security/Medicare, estate, corporate, non-profit, and tax advice 1986.

If you’ll please bear with me for a minute I’ll type up my initial response, and then we can go from there if you have further questions on this.

The answer depends on whether you are retiring early (can be as early as age 62). FULL retirement Age (FRA) is age 66 (for those born between 1943 ad 1954.

...

If you ARE retiring early, SSA will reduce your benefits by $1 earned for every $2 you ear over an annual limit that they publish every year. For 2017 that limit is 16,920.

...

They DO figure this back unto your benefit once you TURN Full Retirement Age, but they look at this annually, and if you earn, say, 2000 over the annual limit in 2017, then they'll stop benefits in 2018 until you're "caught up."

...

Let's say that your social security full benefit would be 1000 (just to make the math easy). This means that they would stop benefits for two months the following year.

...

Now, if you retiring (starting Social Security Benefits) AFTER FRA, then there IS no reduction whatsoever.

033481392, I have been on social security for 5 or 6 years.
I have been on social security for 5 or 6 years. I have several diseases that cannot be cured only controlled. A week ago I started driving for Uber. I thought it was the perfect part time job I could do because I can't work full time. But my medical bills and paying for part of my fathers funeral and 4 thousand in dental bills over my head I thought this would help. Not to mention with all the health issues i have I have to go to 8 different specialists at 45 a copay which is outside my budget. I thought this type of job would be good because on a good day all I need to do is log on and I will get a rider. I was a little gung ho about the first week or so but today and yesterday my arthritis in my knees can only take so much driving and I have have IBS along with cardiac issues. However, yesterday I realized that I had to contact SS to find out how much i can earn with violating the rules of disability. … read more
