Our Retirement Estimator lets you create "what if" scenarios

July 23, 2013

We asked our employees to share their thoughts on our online services, and this is what Brian from Michigan had to say, “I like our Retirement Estimator. I like that it uses actual Social Security earnings records and lets people create ‘what if’ scenarios. This way, people can see what happens if they stop working at different ages or if they switch jobs and their income changes. By allowing them to compare retirement options, we help them better plan for their futures.” www.socialsecurity.gov/estimator
