Veterans Benefits

What Should Show Up On My Social Security Statement?

Jerry,

On February 26th you responded to Frank who had a question about deemed military wages, and stated you had never seen a case in which the deemed wages were not used by the SSA in calculating benefits.

In my case I served in the Navy from 1966 to 1971. If I understand the SSA handbook and literature correctly, for this period $300 is added to any wages earned in any calendar quarter while on active duty or on active duty for training (this is what AnyPIA does).

Hi,

I'm sorry, but I don't know anything about VA benefits. You'll need to contact the Veterans Administration for information. Here is a link to their website with information on how to contact them: https://www.va.gov/landing2_contact.htm.

Best, Jerry
