Howard Kossover: SSA earnings test doesn’t apply to disability benefits
Q: Last year I started Social Security retirement. As it turned out, I did not continue to work part-time as originally planned. Do I need to report that my earnings were less than expected for last year?
A: If you received Social Security retirement or survivors benefits and were younger than full retirement age (FRA) for at least part of last year, report your 2012 employment earnings if your estimated or actual earnings exceeded 2012 earnings test amounts for your age.
