Welcome!Your suggestion of starting a business may well help increase SS payments, but you seem to have some misunderstandings:$2000 in an IRA is not going to grow much before you are eligible for SS.The contribution limit for IRAs 2007 is $4000. It will be $5000 next year. It hasn't been $2000 since 2001.The advantages are in figuring your SS payments. They are based on your last three years wages.SS payments are based on your highest 35 years wages (after indexing), not your last three years.
