Getting “Additional Social Security Benefits” as a Result of Military Service
An article posted today on GoBankingRates.com suggests that certain Veterans may have an opportunity to “boost” the amount of their Social Security benefit check, depending on when they served in active duty. This is an area where the AMAC Foundation’s Social Security Advisory Service has done considerable research in response to constituent questions. As a clarification, we note that “This is not an additional amount which will be added to your monthly Social Security benefit as a bonus for serving. Rather it is an additional dollar amount that has already been added to your earnings record for the years you served in the military.” Check out this June 2020 Q&A post in the archives of this website for more details.
