You may have noticed that you did not receive a Social Security statement recently. A little more than a year ago, the SSA stopped mailing paper statements out in a cost savings move. All is not lost however, as you can go online to get your earnings history and information on estimated benefits at: https://www.socialsecurity.gov/mystatement/
Keeping up to date with what you are entitled to is an important part of your financial plan and your estate plan. If you haven’t done so yet, you should go ahead and create an online account with the Social Security Administration so that you will be able to access your earnings history.
Thank you to Ken Weingarten at Weingarten Associates, L.L.C. for bringing this important information to my attention.
