    Please share this with anyone who's had active duty service prior to January 2002 and planning for retirement. In a nutshell it boils down to this:
    You qualify for a higher social security payment because of your military service, for active duty any time from 1940 through 2001 (the program was done away with in January 2002). Up to $1200 per year of earnings credit credited at time of application - which can make a substantial difference in social security monthly payments upon your retirement.
    You must bring your DD-214 to the Social Security Office - and you must ask for this benefit to receive it!
