Unless you are of full retirement age this year, your benefits will be reduced by $1 for every $2 you earn over $16,920. If 2017 is the year you will reach retirement age, then your benefits will be reduced by $1 for every $3 you earn over $44,880.

This is from Social Security itself : https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10069.pdf

If you have additional concerns about your individual situation, you will need to schedule an appointment with your local office or call Social Security directly.

I hope this helps. Try to have a better day. Please leave a five star rating. Thank you!
