Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Yes, it will. Your benefits are based on your lifetime earnings not on your contributions to FICA. Here's how it works. When you retire, the social security will look at all years you had social security earnings and select 35 best years (year in which you made most money). Those 35 years will be adjusted for inflation (increased by certain percentage) and used to calculate your average. Your benefits will be a percentage of that average. If you worked for more than 35 years, not earning anything for couple of years will not make any difference or change your benefits.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
I did not requested a phone call. It's the website that gives you the option. We can continue here.
