Howard Kossover: SSA guidelines different for total benefits, eligibility

Q: For Social Security retirement, I have heard both that you need 10 years of work and 35 years of work. Which is right?

One topic is the amount of work required to be eligible for Social Security retirement. The other is how the amount of your retirement is calculated.
