I am retired and on Medicare. If I go back to work, will it affect my Medicare?

I am retired and on Medicare. If I go back to work, will my earnings affect my Medicare eligibility? Is there a ceiling on how much I can earn and still keep Medicare?

Medicare eligibility is not based on income or resource levels. Your Medicare eligibility will not be affected by how much income you earn after retirement. However, your Medicare Part B monthly premiums will be higher if you file an individual tax return and your annual income is more than $85,000, or if you are married (file a joint tax return) and your annual income is more than $170,000.
