Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

You can log into www.ssa.gov/myaccount and create an account and view your earnings record. If you have over 30 years of substantial earnings, then you will know.

You can also go to social security and request a printout of your work history. You could check there, too.

Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not please rate positive
