"Under certain circumstances, veterans who served between 1940 and 2001 can be credited for special extra earnings for Social Security purposes.
These extra earnings may help you qualify for Social Security or increase the amount of your Social Security benefit.
The special extra earnings are granted for periods of active duty or active duty for training. Special extra earnings are not granted for inactive duty training.
Social Security cannot add these extra earnings to your record until you file for Social Security benefits." From Military.com
