How can I find out how many quarters I have?

Accountant's Assistant: The Retirement Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

I know that I am short several quarters to apply for social security. I would like to know how many I need to earn at this point to apply. I am a retired government employee, but I have worked several part time jobs and have some quarters but I need to know how many I have and how many I need to apply.

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?

I don't think so. I am interested in working a part time job at this time, but want to know how much time would I have to work.

Please let me know if you have ANY questions at all, before rating me.

If this has helped, and you DON’T have other questions … I'd appreciate a positive rating (using the stars or faces on your screen, and then clicking “submit")

That’s the only way JustAnswer.com will compensate me for the work here.

Thanks,

Am I missing something, because my card has been charged the $5.00.
Social Security Expert: Lane, JD,CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 8 months ago

I bill out to my clients at 150 to 250 per hour. I have no idea what JustAnswer is charging you... but the $5.00. is essentially deposit.

...

I will not be doing this for $5.00
