The Social Security Administration now has a calculator that lets you estimate your retirement benefit by accessing your actual earnings record through a secure interface. If you are estimating a normal retirement benefit, then you may want to try using the Retirement Estimator first, because it is easier to use than the Detailed Calculator and does not require you to enter your earnings record.
Note that the Retirement Estimator does not have all of the features of the Detailed Calculator, and does not provide estimates for everyone. In particular, if you are receiving a benefit based on your own earnings record, the Retirement Estimator will not give you an estimate. You also have to be permanently insured to get an estimate from the Retirement Estimator.
The Detailed Calculator has many features which are not necessary for normal
retirement benefit estimates. If you do not require these features, you should
try using the
first, because it is much easier to use.
