Social Security manager in Marshall
I know you've labored hard throughout the year and had a great Labor Day weekend. You all deserve to kick back and take a rest from all of your hard work. Maybe you'll enjoy a cold beverage with some potato chips. But with fall just around the corner, I want you to take a look at your retirement plans. I get asked numerous times "what will I get" from people.
If you really want to know, then take a look at our Retirement Estimator at our website. You will get an instant, personalized estimate of future retirement benefits. The Estimator uses your actual earnings history to compute a benefit estimate. You can enter a variety of scenarios, such as different earnings amounts and retirement dates, to find out how they will change your benefit amount. If the picture looks better than you anticipated, you might decide it's time to punch your last time card and leave the labor force for retirement sooner than you expected.
It used to be a labor to apply for benefits. It used to mean making a trip to a Social Security office and then being required to fill out paperwork. Now, you can file online. Just like eating more than one potato chip is easy to do, so is filing online. But don't worry, there is no weight gain by filing online. Unless you are eating potato chips while filing online. Anyway, in most cases, once you submit your online application electronically, that's it. There are no additional forms to sign or paperwork to complete. If we need additional information, we will call you. Have a great week everyone and be sure to eat plenty of potato chips!
