I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.
If you have worked enough to qualify for social security disability benefits, you will be able to apply for benefits.
You must have at least 10 years (40 quarters) of social security credit
Most military positions earn you social security credits
I was informed the first time,by social security rep,that I could not recieve benefits due to my enployment with the civil service.
Okay...that makes things different. You have credit for work that is NOT covered by social security
You have Civil Service retirement instead
Yes, but I have my 40 QTRS.
However, if you also have work that you did earn social security in addition to your Civil Service earnings then you may get a benefit, although it could be reduced
You are subject to the WEP ... which reduces your benefit
yes, but I could apply?
Yes, you can apply
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX
Is there anything else that I can assist you with today?
No, you have answered my question...
Okay. If you would please rate my response as "excellent" so that I may receive credit for assisting you today
