43. there's a high correlation

but they are not the same thing. I gave the link to the SS website that gave an example of how they calculate benefits. No place did it say to count up the contributions. The benefit is based on your 35 highest years of inflation adjusted earnings. You might have been making an adjusted $100k a year in the 70's, paying 4.95%, while I made the same income in the 90's, paying 6.2%. We would get the same benefit, because we had the same earnings, even though I paid in more.
