Social Security Military Credits

Flag And Gavel Social Security Military Credits

The Social Security Administration has amended some of their regulations as they pertain to military service. Their new bulletin, which can be viewed at the Social Security Administration website, will help explain how your military service can apply to your Social Security retirement or disability.

Active duty service between 1957 and 2001 has been amended to allow for extra earning to be credited to your Social Security earnings record. Social Security breaks it down in the following way:

  • 1957 – 1967: The SSA will add extra credits when you apply for Social Security benefits
  • 1968 – 2001: The SSA will automatically add extra credits to your record
  • Post 2001: There are no special extra earnings credits for military service

To receive the above special benefits you must have been honorably discharged from military service. You cannot receive these special credits if you are already receiving a federal benefit, not to include military retirement, which covers the same years.
