Benefit Calculators - Estimate Your Benefit
my Social Security Retirement Estimate
Compare retirement benefit estimates based on your selected date or age to begin receiving benefits with retirement estimates for ages 62, Full Retirement Age (FRA), and 70. You can also input expected future income for inclusion in the estimate.
Other calculators, listed below, are less restrictive but require you to enter your earnings.
Quick Calculator (Aquí en Español)
Provides rough estimates of your retirement benefit based on your current earnings. Also provides estimated disability and survivor benefits if you die or become disabled today.
Online Calculator (Aquí en Español)
A special-purpose version of the Online Calculator provides benefit estimates under the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) for those who receive a pension from work not covered by Social Security. None of the calculators listed above can provide such benefit estimates.
To use this program, you need to install it on your computer. This program is the most powerful of all the calculators and is capable of computing almost any type of Social Security benefit.
