"Advice on Social Security"
If you have been filing self employment taxes on schedule C your earning from your own business is earned income. I was an independent contractor for a few years and you have to pay both the employer part of FICA and employee part. The employer part is an adjustment on the 1040 tax form. So if you are contributing you are in the system.
I would file for a report of earning from Social Security if you have been doing this for a while just to check and make sure it is being counted as income.
I read an article about naming a beneficiary for a stock that you personally hold the certificate on (which would remove it from the Probate process) but have run into a blank wall in trying to actually accomplish this. Any advice?

I am self employed and work from my home. I collect rent from my business each month. Is this considered "earned income" by Social Security when I apply for benefits?
