April is Financial Literacy Month, a month focused on educating people about the importance of planning for a secure financial future. Social Security is a vital part of any financial plan, and we have online tools to help you understand your potential Social Security benefits and how they fit into your financial plans.

You should periodically review your Social Security Statement through your personal my Social Security account. Your Statement is an easy-to-read record of your earnings that determine your future benefits. You’ll want to verify that your recorded earnings are correct as they affect the amount you could receive. Your Statement also provides a summary of the estimated benefits you and your family could receive, including potential retirement, disability, and survivors benefits.

Start focusing on your financial literacy today. Log in to your my Social Security account and view your Statement.  If you don’t have an account, create one today.
