Rferd.. I worked from Jan - March. Since my salary was less than the max I could make for the year I got the whole amt.

If you are widowed.. you get the one that will pay you the most. If yours is more at 66 then they will give you yours, if not then you will get your spouses.

Default The bigger problem is...

getting a decent job

I gave up and left the country to teach English abroad

Age discrimination is the biggest problem, I think, and it will
get worse as the economy worsens.

good luck!

Unless you need the income, how about looking at volunteer opportunities so you don't have to worry about the SSI issue? My MIL volunteers at her local school a couple days/week helping in the kindergarten room and then at the local library doing storytime for the preschoolers. In the summer she plants and maintains the community garden and runs the city website. She also drives some of the women in her town to medical appointments and such as needed.

Just a suggestion.

I started drawing full Social Security retirement this year at age 66, My wife has been drawing Social Security for over a year. I am still working and would like to continue. Will we be taxed on our Social Security if I continue working?

You are taxed on your SS based on your AGI on your tax returns. Many are not because they draw so little it falls under the limit for taxation. I believe, tho, that after 66, you can earn any amount of additional income without your SS being reduced.

I wouldn't think so just so you make under or at the $14,100,there wouldn't be a limit per month you made just so you don't go over the stated amount at the end of the year,it is a little bit different with disability income.
