Even divorcees are eligible. They are added to what the family receives. Your benefit payment is reduced for the year if you exceed the limits. The maximum earned income amount in for people at or above full retirement age; your Social Security benefits are reduced if you exceed it. Your earnings plus Social Security could put you up a notch in the tax table. If your deceased spouse or ex-spouse was eligible for a higher Social Security payment than you are, you may be eligible for that higher survivor benefit.
You may qualify for the higher benefit even if your spouse died before applying for benefits. You get a Social Security statement every year. Do not assume it is accurate. Check the numbers and report any errors to the Social Security Administration. Remember, your benefits are based on the average of your 35 highest-earning years.
A miscalculation for even one or two of those years could impact your benefit for the rest of your life.

Like many folks here who lost tens of thousands of dollars in the blink of an eye, that could happen in the future. Javier sounds like he just wants to light up another funny looking cigarette,who could imagine working 60 plus hours a week. Therefore, the charts gives a good approximation for someone just starting out…they have at least a road map of where they should be or aspire financially regarding their k. I think I am do ok even according to your charts. I was an engineer in an assy plant.

Interesting dichotomy of workforce you have there. Government loved to make everybody earn the same. Pretty close to the Fidelity average, right? In this case, the statistics of having my money spread in different places will be misleading compared to the true value of my total retirement funds. So the bottom line is: We are much richer than statistics say we are, and that we should feel much better about ourselves!
I agree. I also like to keep my past several ks separate, even though Fidelity calls me to consolidate. In fact, proper to use the term as 12 million accounts. If half of the people are in the same boat with spread out K accounts than that 12 million turns into others have them all over, than the numbers of 12 million accounts mean there are only 9 million with k accounts.

Possibly less individuals are actually participating if people are really spread out like yourself. Just lots of accounts to a few owners. Especially considering pensions are virtually non-existent in private employment. And quickly becoming non-existent in public employment. People are so out of touch with the economic realities of this country. People who went to school, did the right things, are working 60 hours just to pay bills, and not splurging. Surely one should be allowed to count the present value of any vested pension plan benefit streams and whole life insurance, etc.? How about a growing family business?
To say otherwise is, in a word, alarmist.
Cost of health c are is the killer. We have six hundred and twenty thousand in assets. That with neither one of us having anything particularly serious wrong with us.

All along I had assumed a month would cover it nicely. Do the math. I realize this is an old post that I am replying to. None the less we sacrifice and never made more than 90, a year combined and did not start saving until we were 39 years old. We put two children through college, tithe 10 percent minimum. You need at least 1. I have often wondered if the children might have worked a little harder at the marriage had they had an investment in it.
A little off topic I realize but somehow I felt led to reply.
