Is there a limit to how much I can earn and still collect Social Security benefits?

En español | If you are under full retirement age for the entire year, $1 is deducted from your benefit payments for every $2 you earn above the annual limit of $16,920 (in 2017).  If this is the year that you reach the full retirement age, $1 is deducted for every $3 you earn above $44,880 (in 2017) in the months before your birthday's month.  Once you reach full retirement age there is no longer an earnings limit.
