My social security is not enough to live on. I don’t want to lose it but need to work. I’m 70 yrs old. How much can I make

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?

Hey! I'm Carter, I'm a CPA and can help you with this.

For 2017, the amount was $16,920 a year that you can make before your benefits are reduced. For 2018, the amount is $17,040.

When you reach your full retirement age, you can make however much you want with no limitations. Being 70, you should be at your full retirement age, however, you can double check that you are here: https://www.ssa.gov/planners/retire/ageincrease.html.

You can find out more about working while on Social Security here: https://faq.ssa.gov/link/portal/34011/34019/article/3739/what-happens-if-i-work-and-get-social-security-retirement-benefits

Hope that helps. If you need anything else, just let me know. If not, please leave a rating. Thanks!
