Social Security is a vital part of any financial plan. The administration’s online tools can help you understand your potential Social Security benefits and how they fit into your financial future.
You should periodically review your Social Security statement using your personal my Social Security account at ssa.gov/myaccount.
Your statement is an easy-to-read summary of the estimated benefits you and your family could receive, including potential retirement, disability and survivors’ benefits.
The Plan for Retirement tool in your personal my Social Security account allows you to check various benefit estimate scenarios. You can compare how different future earnings and retirement benefit start dates might affect your future benefit amount.
Improve your financial knowledge when you explore all areas of your my Social Security account. If you don’t have an account, create one at ssa.gov/myaccount.
