Ask Social Security Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hi from just answer. I'm PDtax, and can assist.
Your benefits are recalculated with your higher wages by social security, but earlier years, with their lower wages, are weighted higher in the formula. Also, there are delays in processing your wages for benefit calculations. You should see an increase in your benefit, even after accounting for those two factors.
The number to examine is AIME, or average indexed monthly earnings. When that is increased, your benefits will be, too.
You may want to contact SSA to verify your recent wages are being credited to your work history, and that your benefits will be increased of appropriate.
Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
