AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

What is the maximum full retirement benefit that someone can receive?

En español | In 2013 the maximum monthly benefit at full retirement age (age 66) is $2,533.

This assumes the person earned the maximum taxable earnings for every year after age 21. The maximum monthly benefit changes each year with changes in wages. Retiring early will reduce your benefit by a fraction of a percent for each month you receive benefits before your full retirement age.
