In fact, you want to make sure SS got it right. I know they had a couple of years wrong for DH.
But I am not self employed... I am not employed at all...

With that being said, I filed many months ago... and my account is not updated... so again, I do not think that is the trigger...

Then again, maybe the IRS does not report anything for 8 or 9 months... so it does not matter when you file...

I don't understand what you are talking about then. If you aren't employed - what info would be passed to the SSA? You have 0 earned income you paid no SS tax. Income is not going to show up on any SS report - just a big fat 0.

Yes, a zero income will show up as a zero income on the SS report... I have some early years where it shows zero income...

It makes a difference since it is still assuming that I am working and putting in the salary that I made in 2014 for all years until I am 66... I want to know how much not working is really going to cost me... not using a calculator, but what SS calculates...

Oh - I see. That does eventually all get set to zero. I can't tell you when it switches to that. Mine has a bunch of 0s projected out to the future.

But I don't remember when it quit using prior year's salary to do the comparison.

I think you can log into your SSA.gov account and do various projections using existing data but manipulating future data. If you don't have one set up it's probably a good idea to go ahead because that will lock anyone else out from impersonating you online to set one up.
