Did you know that April is Financial Literacy Month? This is a great time to get serious about planning for your financial future. One way to plan and keep track of your Social Security benefits is to check your Social Security statement.
You can access your Social Security statement instantly online and get information such as estimates for your retirement, disability, and survivors benefits. You can also review the amount of Social Security and Medicare taxes you’ve already paid.
Because Social Security bases your future benefits on your recorded earnings, you should check your statement at least once a year to be sure the amounts recorded are correct. You may also want to check your statement when you have a change of employment.
Make sure you log in or create a My Social Security account today at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount and plan for your bright financial future!
