The Social Security Administration (SSA) recently announced several cost-of-living adjustments for 2009. For starters, benefits will rise 5.8% in 2009. The “earnings test” threshold for working retirees also increases.
If you turn age 66 this year, you won’t lose any Social Security benefits if you earn $37,680 or less before your birthday (up from $36,120 for 2008). Someone between the ages of 62 and 66 can receive up to $14,160 without forfeiting any benefits (up from $13,560). There’s no dollar cap if you’re over age 66.
