be aware under the social security rules,
Expert:  retirementlawyer replied 1 year ago.
earnings for the highest 35 years are averaged and divided by the number of months in 35 years to arrive at Average Indexed Monthly Earnings (AIME).So if these two years were some of your highest earning years, you should try to fight for the increased pay
Expert:  retirementlawyer replied 1 year ago.
you should contact social security and advise them you feel two years are missing, and that you can show through old tax returns, or w2 statements, that you were paid, and they did not count those years, if you can do this, they will make changes.

Expert:  retirementlawyer replied 1 year ago.
Visit www.socialsecurity.gov and open a my Social Security account, Or, call social security toll-free at 1-***-***-****, if you open your own account with them you can see your benefits statements and income earnings. You should call them and make an appointment with your local office, and go over the earnings.
