I do not want to join any plan just want my one question answered. Do not charge any additional charges to my account or I will go to my bank and file a complaint. Like I said I just want my one question answered. Seems even the SS wants to charge for questions. No furher charges.
Expert:  Stephanie O Joy, Esq replied 1 year ago.

Is the $143 your own SS based on your own work record AFTER the old estimates were corrected by the WEP to reflect the proper amount?

PS. This is NOT the Social Security Administration. This is a Q&A site, and I am a social security attorney with a private SS practice. As you experienced at the SSA, they, being a gov't office, do not charge to answer your questions. However, you are seeking help outside of that office from those that make a living in this area.
