Am already retired since year 2007 and I forgot to include few more years worked with different social security number. I called SSA they took the information and told me they will make adjustments in 30 days. Question: Those adjustment could be for the the years not included and with the other number. I have that number myself and it was real name and real Documents..Dou you thing that SSA may do adjustments for those years I wasn't paid for those additional years worked? Thanks a lot for your help and answers Larry
Hi. Yes, I think so. What happened in your case is rare but not unprecedented, and Social Security has procedures to consolidate a person's earnings from more than one Social Security number (SSN) onto a single SSN. My guess is that it will take much more than 30 days to straighten things out, though, so you should prepare to be patient.
By the way, Social Security retirement benefits are based on an average of a person's highest 35 years of Social Security covered wage-indexed earnings, so the additional earnings you mention will only increase your benefit rate if they cause your earnings in those years to be higher than one or more of the 35 years currently being used to calculate your benefit rate.
