  • working while retired

    Asked by someone from Coshocton, OH on 11/4/2016

    My husband is collecting soc sec and retirement. How much can he make working without it affecting anything. He just turned 64 today. His paystub says yearly total to date is $14467.00. Is he over? Are we going to be screwed?

  • For 2015 the work penalty limit is $15,720 - so for every $2 over that limit he'll postpone $1 in Social Security income. This limit goes away once he hits his full retirement age - likely 66.
