my Social Security
If you have a personal my Social Security account, you can get an estimate of your future retirement benefits and see the effects of different retirement age scenarios. If you don’t have a personal my Social Security account, create one at www.ssa.gov/myaccount. If you are estimating a normal retirement benefit, then you may want to try this before using the Detailed Calculator, because it is easier to use and does not require you to enter your earnings record.
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 Online Calculator first, because it is much easier to use.
