I have an online blog that I don't use. It generates some money through ads but not enough for me to spend time on it. My mother wants to take the blog and maintain/update it herself and receive the revenue.
She is currently 65 and wishes to retire at 66. She does not earn much money, less than 20K per year. The blog would bring her less than 10K per year in additional revenue. She lives in California & does not have any savings for retirement. Her plan was to live off her basic public pension, which I imagine would be very minimal, less than 12K I assume.
My question is, how will the extra blog revenue affect her pension once she retires next year. Would she receive a lower public pension because she's receiving extra revenue? I'm in Canada so I know nothing about how things work there so I was hoping to get some info before getting her hopes up that this would beneficial to her.
