Your Social Security Statement is one the most valuable tools you can use to learn about your earnings and future Social Security benefits and with the addition of the Social Security Administration’s new fact sheets, you get more clarity and useful information to better understand Social Security programs and benefits.
The new fact sheets accompany your online Statement help you better understand your Social Security information based on your age group and earnings situation.
A convenient way to access the Statement is by using my Social Security, where you’ll find a variety of useful tools and information, including the new fact sheets.
The fact sheets cover:
- Retirement planning for four different age groups (Ages 18-48, 49-60, 61-69 and 70+).
- Benefit information for:
- Workers with non-covered earnings who may be subject to the Windfall Elimination Provision/Government Pension Offset;
- Workers who are not fully insured;
- Workers with an intermittent work history; and
- New workers.
- Medicare planning.
The fact sheets were designed to help you better understand Social Security so you can make informed decisions based on your specific situation.
