I saw on the internet where you can get 2750.00 per mo for social security I like to know how can I qualify to get 2760.00 per mo.

Hi,

The amount you reference is roughly the maximum retirement benefit rate payable to someone retiring at age 66 in 2018. In order to be due that high of a benefit, you would need to have paid the maximum amount of Social Security taxes (https://www.ssa.gov/OACT/COLA/cbb.html) for at least the last 35 years. For more information on how benefits are calculated, refer to this Social Security publication: https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10070.pdf.
