If the OP is not yet 50, and plans to retire by then, then honestly the SSA PIA estimates are practically SWAG. Inflation adjustments alone will determine the actual amount more than 17 years from now, more than anything else.

Right, this is the issue

Okay then.
It is quite possible that you have many years at or near the maximum earnings subject to SS withholding taxes, plus have gone through the 2nd bend, the incremental earnings might have little effect on your potential increases in SS payouts.

Now take your PIA to OpenSocialSecurity and it supposedly gives you an optimum way to maximise your take. YOu can also include a spouse's PIA and it purports to give you the optimal way to declare for both of you.

Sorry if this was already covered.
