I was a member of the U.S. Air Force from 07/1973 to 07/1977 and again from 01/1979 to 12/1996. Since this falls into the 1967 to 2001 date range, I understand that an extra $300/mo of service will be added to my aggregate total eligible income. I need to take my DD for 214 to the SS office in order to qualify for the additional sum.
Not that I'll receive and additional $300/mo. but that much will be added to my already existing contribution.
