Social Security Question:
Income limits for age 62 retired married social security recipient
Social Security Answer:
My wife and I are both 62, both retired and both receiving Social Security. I work part time and my wife does not work at a paying job. We do file and have always filed our taxes as married, joint return.
What is the limit that I can earn this year in my part-time job before adverse tax consequences on my SSA income?
Is it the $14,160 individual limit or can I earn $28,320 because we are married and file joint tax returns.

Each of you have the $14160 limit. The earnings are registered under the individuals own SSN. As far as the tax question, you should call IRS because it also depends on your other incomes.......Carol
