Social Security Quick Calculator
Benefit estimates depend on your date of birth and on your earnings history. For security, the "Quick Calculator" does not access your earnings record; instead, it will estimate your earnings based on information you provide. So benefit estimates made by the Quick Calculator are rough.
Although the "Quick Calculator" makes an initial assumption about your past earnings, you will have the opportunity to change the assumed earnings (click on "See the earnings we used" after you complete and submit the form below).
You must be at least
age 22 to use the form at right.
Lack of a substantial earnings history will cause retirement benefit estimates to be unreliable.
If you have any questions or comments about the Quick Calculator, please visit our Contact Social Security page for ways to contact us. Remember to use "Quick Calculator" as the subject so we know which calculator your question or comment refers to.
