Many people wonder how we figure their Social Security retirement benefit. We base Social Security benefits on your lifetime earnings.

The SSA will adjust or “index” your actual earnings to account for changes in average wages since the year the earnings were received.

Then Social Security calculates your average indexed monthly earnings during the 35 years in which you earned the most.

They apply a formula to these earnings and arrive at your basic benefit, or “primary insurance amount” - PIA

To calculate YOUR possible benefits - we need to know your earning during your lifetime.

contact Social Security at 1-***-***-**** to request an appointment.

(If they are deaf or hard of hearing, they should call our TTY number, 1-***-***-****.)

.

The SSA office serving your area is located at

Address:16900 NW 12 AVE MIAMI, FL 33169

Phone:1-***-***-**** TTY:1-***-***-****

Let me know if you need any help.

My salary it was $ 3000 for aproxima 30 years
Social Security Expert: lev-tax, Tax Advisor replied 8 months ago

Your estimated monthly benefit amount, IF you start social security benefits at your FRA - full retirement age - your estimated benefits would be ~$1100.

Sorry my salary it was $3000 monthly or 36000 by 30 years
Social Security Expert: lev-tax, Tax Advisor replied 8 months ago

Yes - I used that amount for estimations.

In this case your social security benefits are estimated as $1100 if you started at your FRA - full retirement age.

If however - you started earlier - for instance from 62 - your benefits would be $775
