I have been with Social Security for more than 30 years and can honestly say that the retirement estimator has been one of the best tools that the agency has provided. In the past you had to visit a Social Security office or call our toll-free number in order to get an updated estimate of your retirement benefits. For the past five years you can use Social Security’s Retirement Estimator from your home or office computer.
Hard to believe, but it’s been five years since Social Security’s Retirement Estimator debuted. Within months of first becoming available, the online Estimator was praised as one of the best services on the Internet, and it has consistently retained its excellent rating every year.
