The Employment Effects of the Social Security Earnings Test

Abstract

"We investigate the impact of the Social Security Annual Earnings Test (AET) on the employment decisions of older Americans.The AET reduces Social Security benefits by one dollar for every two dollars earned above the exempt amount. Using a differences-in-differencesdesign, we find that the employment rate of those predicted to become subject to the AET decreases substantially relativeto those not predicted to become subject to it. The point estimates suggest that the AET reduces the employment rate of Americansaged 63-64 by at least 1.2 percentage points."
