Young family placing coins in a piggy bankFinancial Literacy Month is focused on educating people about the importance of planning for a secure financial future. Every April, we like to remind you that Social Security is a vital part of any financial plan. We have online tools to help you understand your potential Social Security benefits and how they fit into your financial future.

You should periodically review your Social Security Statement using your personal my Social Security account. Your Statement is an easy-to-read summary of the estimated benefits you and your family could receive, including potential retirement, disability, and survivors benefits.

Our Plan for Retirement tool in your personal my Social Security account allows you to check various benefit estimate scenarios. You can compare the effect different future earnings and retirement benefit start dates have on your future benefit amount.

Please let friends and family know they can take steps to improve their financial knowledge by signing in to their secure my Social Security account. If they don’t have an account, they can easily create one.

We also encourage you to join us for our Financial Literacy Month Twitter chat on Friday, April 15, 2022 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern time. We’re co-hosting with America Saves to bring you tips for planning a secure financial future. Follow @SocialSecurity and @AmericaSaves on Twitter – and use #FinancialLiteracyChat. We hope to see you there!
