The Retirement Estimator is an online tool available on the official government website of the Social Security Administration at http://www.socialsecurity.gov/estimator.
The Retirement Estimator is an immediate and personalized financial planning tool that lets workers calculate how much they might expect to receive in Social Security benefits when they retire.
Visit http://www.socialsecurity.gov/estimator. To get an estimate, you’ll need to enter your first and last name, date of birth, Social Security number, mother’s maiden name and place of birth. If the information matches Social Security records, the Retirement Estimator combines this information with the information that Social Security has on record, including your yearly earnings, to provide a quick and reliable online benefit estimate.
The Retirement Estimator is convenient and interactive. One key feature of this calculator is that it eliminates the need to manually key in years of earnings information. It’s so easy to use. It will let you create “what if” scenarios. You can, for example, change “stop work” dates or expected future earnings to create and compare different retirement options.
The Retirement Estimator is secure. To protect your privacy, only your benefit estimates are provided online. The Retirement Estimator does not reveal any personal information, such as your address, earnings or other information, that could lead to identity theft.
