Earned Income Exclusion

SSI – The Social Security Administration (SSA) does not count the first $65 of the earnings you earn in a month, plus one-half of the remaining earnings. This means that SSA counts less than one-half of your earnings when they figure your SSI payment amount. SSA applies this exclusion in addition to the $20 general income exclusion. The $20 general income exclusion is first applied to any unearned income that you may receive.

For a complete explanation go to SSA Online and view the Redbook section or  contact your local Benefits Planner by calling 1-866-YOURTICKET (1-866-968-7842).
