En español | Yes. This is how it works: There are two different limits under the Retirement Earnings Test. The lower limit is $15,720 in 2016 and applies to everyone who is below the full retirement age (age 66) for all of the year. For these people, benefits are reduced by $1 for every $2 in earnings over $15,720. The upper limit, $41,880 in 2016, applies to anyone who reaches full retirement age in the year and only applies to earnings before the month you reach full retirement age. For these people, benefits are reduced by $1 for every $3 in earnings over $41,880.
