Retirement tax questions

You need 40 quarters in the system to be eligible.  Once you are eligible, the actual amount of the benefit is based on the 35 highest earning years.  Spouses who don’t work can also collect a benefit based on their working spouse, which is up to 50% of their spouse’s benefit.
