How many quarters/work credits do I have?

Published: April 25, 2024

Full question: How do I find out how many quarters I need to fulfill my 40 and know what the benefit might be to decide if I want to get a part time job to get there?

Hi there!

You can contact the Social Security Administration in several ways to obtain this information.

If you area able to set up a mySocialSecurity account, that is the best way. You can do that here. There, under the Eligibility and Earnings heading, you will see the number of quarters you have accumulated so far and have access to your earnings records.

You can also reach out to your local SSA office to set up an appointment or phone call.

Warm regards,
