Previous posts have stated that unearned income (dividends & interest) are not calculated to determine ss benefit amt. however, it clearly states in tmf pixy's article (1/18/00) that unearned income is calculated. I find this confusing. Next year, at age 62, i wish to take ss benefits. Although, I have no earned income, I do have a high investment income and am told by my accountant that i will be giving most if not all of the ss benefits back in taxes. It seems so very unfair.
anyway, would appreciate a clear statement on whether or not unearned income factors into the ss payout amt.
also would like to say how useful and enjoyable this board is. I thank everyone.
