I am 69 years old and collect Social Security. If I get a part-time job - what is the maximum amount I can earn and still keep my Social Security amount?

You can earn any amount and collect your Social Security if you are 69 years old and receive Social Security retirement, spouse’s or widow(er)s benefits. The Social Security annual earnings limit no longer applies to retirement and spousal benefits as of the month you attain full retirement age. Full retirement age is 66 for people born between 1943 and 1954. The only Social Security benefits affected by working after reaching full retirement age are benefits paid to disabled adult children collecting on a parent’s Social Security record.
