How to get maximum social security benefits
The Social Security Administration (SSA) calculates an average wage based on your 35-year career.
One of the best pieces of advice for people hoping for some accomplishment in retirement would be to work longer hours.
If you haven’t worked for 35 years, you get a “zero” on your average for each year you didn’t bring in a salary.
The number is adjusted for inflation and gives you your basic benefit amount.
The longer you work, the more likely you are to get maximum performance — up to $4,194 a month, which equates to $50,328 a year.
