Do you know the monthly benefits you are entitled to when you retire? What if you become disabled? Do you know how many quarters of coverage you have? How many more you need to be entitled to benefits?
Knowing what you are entitled to is the first step in successfully planning for your future and being prepared for what that future may bring. The Social Security Administration has now made it easier for you to find out information regarding your work history and benefits by providing an electronic version of your Social Security Statement, which the SSA previously mailed to members of the public, annually. Log on to www.socialsecurity.gov/mystatement to set up an electronic account and review your personalized statement.
The SSA will also continue to mail paper copies of the Social Security Statement to eligible members of the public, age 60 or older, who are not yet receiving Social Security benefits.
