for Sacto Fool:Just what you said, and I like your style.However (...he continues in a low tone...) according to that good source you gave, and searching on "benefit calculation", it's 35 rather than 30 years. I will notice the difference (not that it is large) because I paid maximum social security tax for "only" 30 years before leaving the work force.Only the thirty-five highest earning years are considered in the benefit calculation. This results in "zero-earning" years for workers with less than 35 work years and excludes years for those who have worked more than 35 years.At least the SSA includes your best 35 years if you worked longer than that.Chips, another denizen of the desert who enjoys walking in the rain
