How do i find out if i am getting my Miitary benefit.<?blockquote>
I assume that what you're referring to are deemed military wages (DMW). DMW's are extra wage credits that are added to the actual military wages paid to veterans for certain years in which they were on active duty (https://www.ssa.gov/OP_Home/handbook/handbook.09/handbook-0953.html). DMWs are then considered when calculating the worker's Social Security retirement or disability benefit rate.

how do i find out if i am collecting my military extra credit benefit
How do I know if I got credit for my Service in the Army (1967-1969 Vietnam) on my Social Security Benefit?
I served in the Air National Guard for 31 1/2 yrs. and was on active duty after 911 from Dec.1,2001-Aug.26,2002 and did other short Active Duty orders. I retired 2yrs ago and am now collecting SS. Am I entitled to additional SS benefits because of my Military Duty?
i am a military veteran with 38 work credits.is there any way i couls use my military service credits to upgrade my credits to the required 40.?
Larry, I contacted SSA concerning military credits and was told there is no way to verify that I am getting the credit. I did verify my reported SS wages from W2 forms, and they are the same as on SS web site estimate, no difference showing credit. below is a transcript of my conversation with SSA concerning same. Please advise, Thank You!
I served in military from1968 - 1975 two years active. When I filed for Social security. Was I suppose to get extra because I served during that time on active duty & can I still file if eligible??????
How can we find out whether my husband is getting credit for the 6 years he spent in the National Guard?
Am I eligible to receive extra social security benefits having served on active duty from Feb. 1956 to Feb. 1959?
Not necessarily. What you would be eligible for are military wage credits (MWC) and deemed military wages (DMW) for that period of time. Those extra wage credits could then be used in the calculation of your retirement benefit rate, which may or may not increase your rate depending on how much you earned in other years.
I am 69. I applied online for Social Security Benefits when I was 62. I served in the Air Force from 19 June 1968 until 30 June 1994.
I'm not sure the online application I did let me enter my Active Duty Military Service time. I never had to show anyone my DD214.
Should I contact my Soc Sec Office and ask them to look at my record to see if I am receiving all I am supposed to, or did they ask
me on the online application about my miltary service? Thank you.
