Substantial earnings threshold


Q. I recently applied for CSRS pension, and currently have 25 years of substantial earnings covered under Social Security. Any idea where I can go to see the substantial earnings threshold numbers for the upcoming years beyond 2017?

A. For 2018 that number is $23,850. There are no projections for upcoming years.
