My question is about free wage credits for those who served in the military from 1957 to 1997.
According to Social Security they updated my annual earnings with the free wage credits.
But I belong to a military organization (AAFMAA ) that sends me an annual document that shows what my estimated annual earnings should be, and they are higher than the data shown on my Social Security statement. I sent them a copy of my annual earnings every year I was in the military.
Deemed Military Wages
I was on active duty from 1958 to1960, do I get extra credit for this
I was in the Navy 1959-1963. How do I know if I qualify for extra S.S. benefits.
Good morning. My brother and I received a message stating that our dad, qualify for an increase on his benefits. Basically, it states that his DD214 qualifies him for this increase if he was active duty between January 1959 - December 2001. He does. If this is correct information, what does he need to obtain his increast
I served in the army 9/28/1960 to 9/27 63 active duty and 9/28/1966/inactive. I retired at age 62 and i am now 77.
I do not recall having my time in active duty paying taxes counted in my ss benefits
if not can i go back to ss to check or is it to late I do have my DD 214
I helped my ex husband file for social security disability benefits around 2014 for his illness and he was approved benefits. I was unaware at the time of doing his on line application of this time should maybe count as credits for his 4 years served in the 1990's . My ex husband has passed in 2016 from his illness and I am single mother raising his son that is 15, I wanted to know how do I go about making sure that his record reflects his credit if he was entitled to receive this on his social security record.
I served in the Air Force from 1979-1999. I have my December pay stubs for 95, 96, 97 showing what my end of year earnings were. When I look at my social security earnings for those years it only shows my earning nothing extra. Called social security and was told if I paid into social security I don’t get anything added unless I need that amount to qualify for social security. From all I have read that doesn’t sound right. I would appreciate your thoughts on the subject
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.
