Frequently Asked Questions About Social Security

We’ve researched FAQs that have high search volume, and written responses that have keywords meant to capture people searching for answers to these questions. The FAQs would be added to the bottom of each of the primary service pages listed below. 

Is social security taxable?

The short answer is ‘yes.’ If your income exceeds $25,000 as an individual or $32,000 as a married couple filing jointly, you will have to pay federal income tax on your social security benefits. You cannot be taxed more than 85% of your social security benefit, regardless of the income bracket you fall into.

Additionally, 13 states apply state taxes on social security. Montana, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah are the only western states to tax social security at the state level. 

There are many more rules and specifications that go into calculating social security and how it is taxed. Contact us for a free personal evaluation of your unique case.

How do I apply for social security?

You can apply online or by visiting a Social Security Office. Applying for social security benefits can be overwhelming and time consuming. Marken Law can help you file for your benefits, or appeal if you have been denied. Call us at 509-879-4626 for free information.

What age do I have to be to collect social security?

You must be 62 years old to apply for social security, however, you will receive less if you apply at 62 than if you wait until your full retirement age. Prior to 1983, full retirement age was 65. The law was changed and now your full retirement age is based upon the year you were born. You can use this calculator to determine your full retirement age.
