If your active military service occurred

  • From 1957 through 1967, the SSA will add the extra credits to your record when you apply for Social Security benefits.
  • From 1968 through 2001, you do not 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.

For military service before 1957 - there are no specific adjustments.

Social Security Expert: lev-tax, Tax Advisor replied 1 month ago

Earnings for active duty military service or active duty training have been covered under Social Security since 1957.

If you served in the military before 1957, you didn’t pay Social Security taxes, but the SSA gave you special credit for some of your service.

Here is the form - you need to prepare and send to the SSA

https://www.ssa.gov/forms/ssa-2512.pdf

You may send by mail or in person to any SSA office.

Let me know your zip code and I will provide a local SSA office serving your area.
