You are not yet collecting, is that right?

Expert:  Stephanie O Joy, Esq replied 1 year ago.

Assuming that to be so, to find out your estimated benefit rate, you can download this by going to and creating a passworded account account. From that account, you can download your annual SS earnings statement that provides you the estimate for your full PIA benefit amount (if you collected now, at your full retirement age) as well as what it would be at 70 years old if you delayed collecting til that time.
