Re: Your Monthly Social Security Payment

I have 19 'non-zeros' on my SS Statement - The last pre-SS-retirement statement shows 463/mo if retiring at 62 - With the WEP decrease (due to having non-SS pension) I started collecting last year at 62 and receive less than 250/mo.

Re: Your Monthly Social Security Payment

If I recall correctly, my statement says something like $650, but I don't believe it (I haven't contributed anything since 1992 since my employer contributes to a 401a plan in lieu of SS) . I suspect I will be hammered badly by the windfall elimination provision, and may only get 50% of what the statement says. I never have figured out how this is fair since I have my 40 quarters and should qualify whatever that works out to, but it is what it is.

I have an inferiority complex, but it's not a very good one.
