  • Good question.

    The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides an online account that you can use to check your projected benefit - which will continue to change as you work longer and your income level changes. You can find it here: http://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/

    You may also want to try our Social Security Calculator which will help you think through when to claim social security:
