Understand Your Social Security Benefit Amount in Four Easy Steps

Social security benefits are not one-size-fits-all. Depending on the circumstances, your benefits could be much higher than those of other people in a similar situation. Social security benefits are given to individuals with disabilities, retired individuals, individuals with Medicare, and individuals with supplemental income.

Knowing how to calculate the social security benefits you are entitled to may be a difficult task for you. Here at The Khaki Law Firm, we have helped numerous people calculate their social security benefits and we are ready to do the same for you. Call us today to schedule your 30-minute free consultation.

Step One

The first step to learning more about the social security benefits you may be entitled to is to look up your statement online. In order to know what benefits you are eligible to receive, you can visit the Social Security Administration’s website.

Step Two

When you get to the website, click on “My Social Security.” To find the “My Social Security” tab, look on the front page of SSA.gov. The icon is located on the far left of the homepage. If the icon is not showing up on the left side, look for an image of a white hand hovering over a blue bar.

Step Three

Once you click on the “My Social Security” icon, you will be prompted to either sign into an existing social security account or create an account. However, keep in mind that when you create a new account, you will need to create a username and password, and come up with some answers to security questions. After logging in or creating a new account, you will be able to see your statement right away!

Step Four

Once you login to your account, look for the box titled “Your Estimated Benefits.” You can typically find information on the second page of your statement, and it is typically notated with a box that states, “you have earned enough credits to qualify for benefits.” That box is where you would see your monthly benefit amount. Bear in mind that the figure is typically an estimate; however, it is pretty accurate in most instances. People who qualify for social security benefits should expect to see benefits ranging from $1,200 to $2,500 a month. However, it is essential to note that if you do not see a number there or if the number is zero, you do not have enough credits to qualify at that time.
