Special Extra Earnings for Military Service


Please share this with anyone who's had active duty service prior to January 2002 and planning for retirement. In a nutshell it boils down to this: You qualify for a higher social security payment because of your military service, for active duty any time from 1940 through 2001 (the program was done away with in January 2002). Up to $1200 per year of earnings credit credited at time of application - which can make a substantial difference in social security monthly payments upon your retirement.


Marion's note: This is incorrect! The correct dates are 1957-2001. Please see our replies below!


You must bring your DD-214 to the Social Security Office - and you must ask for this benefit to receive it! Soc Sec website:




This is something to put in your files for when you apply for Social Security down the road. It is NOT just for retirees, BUT anyone who has served on active duty prior to January 2002. FYI - this benefit is not automatic, you must ask for it!
