Social Security recently announced its new “Retirement Estimator” as a planning tool that allows you to get an immediate and personalized estimate of your potential Social Security retirement benefit.

The Retirement Estimator is tied to your actual Social Security earnings record and allows you to compare different retirement options. The only information you need to start is your name, Social Security number, date of birth, place of birth and mother’s maiden name.

According to Social Security the “Retirement Estimator” is easy to use. However, before writing this blog I gave it a test run and managed to lock myself out : ) but don’t let that stop you from giving it a try.

Thanks for reading,
