En español | The Social Security Administration does not break the $16,920 (in 2017) Retirement Earnings Limit into monthly amounts. Your benefits will not be affected until your combined annual earnings exceeds $16,920. 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 $16,920 limit, your benefit will be reduced by $1 for every $2 in earnings over the limit. The only exception to this rule is in the first year you claim. At this time, you will be subject to a monthly maximum of $1,410 until January of the following year.
