How Much You May Get From Social Security.
July 19, 2016
To learn how much you may receive in benefits when you retire, take a look at your Social Security Statement. You can review it at any time by creating a “my Social Security account” on the Social Security Administration’s website, www.ssa.gov. If you prefer not to create an account, the Social Security Administration will mail you a statement at ages 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, and each year after that until you begin receiving benefits. Reviewing your statement provides an opportunity to correct any errors in your earnings record, which is important because your benefits will be based on it. Plus the statement serves as a great reminder of the importance of your own savings in helping to ensure a financially secure retirement.
