How can I get an estimate of my Social Security benefits?

The easiest way to get an estimate of your future Social Security benefits is to use the benefit calculators available on the Social Security Administration's website, www.ssa.gov. You can estimate your retirement benefit based on your actual earnings record using the Retirement Estimator calculator, then create different scenarios based on current law that will illustrate how different earnings amounts and retirement ages will affect the benefit you receive. Other benefit calculators are also available that can help you estimate disability and survivor's benefits.
