How does Social Security work?

You pay taxes into the Social Security system, on every paycheck, in the form of deductions from your wages. When you reach retirement age (or cannot work due to disability) you can apply for the benefits you’ve earned. The amount of the Social Security benefits you receive will depend on three things:

• The amount of time you worked at Social Security-qualifying jobs
• Your income at these jobs
• Retirement age

Basically, the longer you work (and the more money you made) the higher your Social Security benefits will be. Benefits don’t kick in automatically and you need to apply through an application process.
