"Veterans & Social Security" This info might help some vets get an increase in your monthly SSA check. This only applies to veterans that served between 1957 & 1968 and who retired before 2002. Since the SSA uses the last 35 years of employment to determine how much your benefit will be, the vets in the mentioned group can have about $12,000 added to their income summary for their years in the service. That could make a difference in how much your benefit check will be. For complete info see the SSA webpage dedicated to this issue.
