Investment Income Does Not Count in Social Security "Earnings Limit"

If you're receiving Social Security retirement benefits AND you receive income from wages, your Social Security wages may be reduced if you earn more than $16,920 (2017).

However, if you receive investment income, this will not affect your Social Security benefit.

If you have considerable investment income, this may mean your Social Security benefits are TAXED, but they will not be REDUCED.
