Retirement: Rental income and Social Security benefits

by michael nupuf

Is rental income included in earnings towards the $12,900 limit to receive full Social Security benefits?


My medical corporation pays me rent for the use of rooms within my house for the business. Does this rent count toward the income limit or is separate?

Thank you. Sincerely, Michael

Wendy: Social Security counts earnings, not withdrawals from retirement accounts, etc. What I'm not sure about is self-employment...

Unfortunately, I can't answer your question and you might need to contact Social Security for the answer.

1-800-772-1213 is the nationwide number for Social Security.

Best Wishes!
