Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Unfortunately, working an additional 10 years will not increase your benefit amount.

Social Security uses your 35 HIGHEST EARNING YEARS when figuring your benefit amount.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
