Tell Congress to Oppose Any Tax Bill That Would Increase Taxes for Seniors! Take Action Now

 

My wife already receives benefits from her own work record, but I haven't filed yet. We file our taxes jointly. Will my wife's benefit be reduced because I will make more than $17,040 this year?

En español | Your earned income will not affect your wife's retirement benefits if she has claimed on her own work record. If she is receiving a spouse benefit, the fact that you made more than $17,040 her benefit may be reduced if your benefit is also impacted by the retirement earnings test.
