My husband is working and collecting SS since his 66th birthday in June,2017. How much can he earn before he is penalized?

Hi,

Since your husband has already reached his full retirement age of 66, he can draw all of his Social Security benefits regardless of how much he earns. The Social Security earnings test no longer applies once a worker reaches their full retirement age (https://www.ssa.gov/planners/retire/whileworking.html).
