Quarter of Coverage

The personal income one must earn in a year to be eligible for one quarter of the Social Security benefits to which one may be entitled. That is, one who earns a quarter of coverage has that year counted as part of his/her working life for calculating benefits after retirement. One cannot earn more than four quarters of coverage per year, regardless of one's income.
