The Social Security Administration does not break the $15,120 (in 2013) Retirement Earnings Limit into monthly amounts. Your benefits will not be affected until your combined annual earnings exceeds $15,120. If you earn $14,000 in January and no other income for the year, your benefit will not be reduced. If you do earn more than the $15,120 limit, your benefit will be reduced by $1 for every $2 in earnings over the limit.
