AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

Can rental income cause a reduction in a current Social Security benefit?

En español | Social Security only counts income earned from employment towards the Retirement Earnings Test.  Other kinds of income; including income from rental properties, lawsuit payments, inheritances, pensions, investment dividends, IRA distributions and interest; will not cause benefits to be reduced.
