Does presenting you DD214 to the social security

Customer Question
Does presenting you DD214...

Does presenting you DD214 to the social security administration increases your social security benefit

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

There is a letter by the Transport Workers Union stating that If veterans take there DD214 to the social security administration office and present it that it would increase your entitlements by $1500.00

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

I do not know this was presented to me by a friend. Is it true

The DD Form 214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty, generally referred to as a "DD 214", is a document of the US Dept of Defence - issued upon a military service member's retirement, separation, or discharge from active duty in the Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Marines, Maritime Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard),

...

"Under certain circumstances, special extra earnings for periods of active duty from 1957 through 2001 can also be credited to your Social Security earnings record.

...

From 1957 through 1967, we will add the extra credits to your record when you apply for Social Security benefits.

...

From 1968 through 2001, you don’t need to do anything to receive these extra credits. The credits were automatically added to your record.

...

After 2001, there are no special extra earnings credits for military service."
