QuestionDoes all the years i have worked count to get my social security or just the last five years
Your Social Security benefit is computed based upon your last 35 years of earnings. As you keep working, the years with zero credits will drop off.
You can request a earnings summary from the Social Security Administration by visiting your local SSA office, calling 1-800-772-1213, or going to their website at www.ssa.gov.
The report will show how many credits you have and your expected Social Security benefit.
