Estimate your retirement benefits  New!

If you currently have enough Social Security credits to qualify for benefits, you can use the Retirement Estimator for a retirement estimate based on current law and real time access to your earnings record. After a secure log-in using your name, Social Security number, date and place of birth and mother's maiden name, the estimator:

  • provides an estimate of your retirement benefits comparable to the estimate you receive on your Social Security Statement each year, and
  • lets you create additional "what if" retirement scenarios based on current law.

Note: If you are eligible for a pension based on work that was not covered by Social Security, please use one of our other benefit calculators. The Retirement Estimator will not include the possible effect of the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) in your estimate.



Estimate all your Social Security benefits

If you do not want to log-in or you want a survivors or disability benefit estimate, we have other benefit calculators that can estimate your future retirement, disability and survivors benefits.


If you already have a benefit estimate
