You might wonder how the SSA figures your Social Security retirement benefit.

They base Social Security benefits on your lifetime earnings - 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.

If you worked less than 35 years - zeros are used for these missing years.

.

The simplest way to have estimated social security benefits - is to get your SSA statement.

Here is an example of such statement

https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/materials/pdfs/SSA-7005-SM-SI%20Wanda%20Worker%20Near%20retirement.pdf

You can get your personal Social Security Statement online by using your my Social Security account. If you don’t yet have an account, you can easily create one. Your online Statement gives you secure and convenient access to your earnings records. It also shows estimates for retirement, disability and survivors benefits you and your family may be eligible for.
