How Work Affecs Your Benefits

Authored By: Social Security Administration

How much can you earn and still get benefits? Your earnings and your benefits " how much will you get? What income counts"and when do we count it? Special rule for the first year you retire. Should you report changes in your earnings? Will you receive higher monthly benefits later if benefits are withheld because of work? Are there other ways that work can increase your benefits?
