I have a question regarding my future benefits when I am
I have a question regarding my future benefits when I am eligible to collect. I am presently 52 years old, and I haven't had full-time income for over 10 years now. I started my full time career at 25 years old, and worked for many years off and on due to job layoffs, career changes, etc. I wont' get into the details here. My counselor recently stated to me that your amount of benefits can vary, depending upon what "quarter" you earned your lifetime income. The majority of my lifetime professional income was back in my 20s and 30s but since my 40s up to today, I haven't been able to earn a good professional income. I know I still have time (that is diminishing), but will the time frames of my lifetime income affect my overall SS benefits, or is my entire lifetime of income taken into consideration, regardless of when during my working life I earned income? I am presently 52 years old, and 65 is probably wishful thinking, I assume I will go to the maximum age of 70. Thanks for your help on this question. Tim … read more
