How do I quickly find out what I can expect for monthly

Customer Question
How do I quickly...

How do I quickly find out what I can expect for monthly income w my Social security once I choose to use it?

Accountant's Assistant: The Retirement Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

I am striving to do some simple planning myself first. Is there a link I can just put in my SS# ***** to get the estimate now?

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?

There are a few questions that I can answer all needed is:How much social security are you anticipating? With the direction: You can go to the social security website.

Hi, my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. I see you've run into their automated response system. Sorry for the delay!

First, if you have your record of earnings you can use the online benefits calculator that can be found here: https://www.ssa.gov/planners/retire/AnypiaApplet.html

If you haven't received your earnings record then you can create an online account with Social Security and access your information there. To create an online account you will need: Your name as it appears on your Social Security account, your social security number, your date of birth, a U.S. mailing address, a U.S. issued driver's license or ID card, a valid e-mail address, and it also helps to have a cell phone that is capable of receiving text messages, although not mandatory.

Go to www.ssa.gov/myaccount and click on "Sign in or Create an Account." Follow the prompts from there. After entering your personal information you will choose a user name and password; you will also have to create three security questions (make sure you write down your answers!) and when completed the program will send you a code via email or text.

Once your account is created you will be able to view your earnings history, calculate your benefits, etc. It's a pretty user friendly system. The system is generally available from 5 a.m. to 1 a.m. M-F, 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. on Sunday. If you have difficulty logging in or getting the account created you can call them M-F between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. at(###) ###-####(wait times can be a half hour to an hour).

If for some reason you cannot create an account and would prefer to visit your local office, you can find your office location here: www.ssa.gov/locator/

That's it. The system usually works pretty well. If this has answered your question a positive rating would be appreciated. Thank you!
