If your active military service occurred:

  • From 1957 through 1967, we will add the extra credits to your record when you apply for Social Security benefits.
  • From 1968 through 2001, you do not need to do anything to receive these extra credits. The credits were automatically added to your record. 
  • After 2001, there are no special extra earnings credits for military service.
