Hi, may name is ***** ***** I am an SS lawyer. That will depend on what you earned and when you earned it. There are various complicated calculation procedures, including indexing earnings etc., as well as determining lifetime average monthly income and applying a formula to that to come up with your estimated benefits.

The SSA can provide you with an estimate. Let me know if you wish me to direct you on how to get that.
