Question
I retired in 2008 at age 62 and started drawing my social security, If I start to work again how much can I earn in a year at my present age? I will turn 67 in October.

Answer
The Social Security earnings test only applies to months before you reach your full retirement age.  Your full retirement age is 66; therefore, you can earn as much as you want without Social Security withholding benefits due to wages or net self-employment income.
