Mixing Social Security & Veteran Benefits

Georgina Tzanetos notes military members have been covered by the Social Security system since 1957. There is generally no reduction of Social Security benefits because one receives military retirement benefits, as there is for certain municipal employees via WEP and GPO. Thus veterans can receive two monthly benefit checks at the same time. Social Security benefits are based on earnings and the age vets begin to start receiving benefits, just like everyone else. The SSA states that under certain circumstances, special earnings can be credited to your military pay record for Social Security purposes. She explains that in the full article here.

The AMAC Foundation offers a free-to-the-public advisory service to all folks ageing into–or already in–Social Security. This service provides guidance in understanding the complexities of Social Security and the myriad rules and regulations associated with the process for claiming benefits, with NSSA-Certified Social Security Advisors available via email or telephone to discuss options. Learn more about this service via the Foundation’s website.
