Social Security is part of the retirement plan of almost every American worker – yet often it can be confusing and unclear when you’re trying to understand what all it entails.
If you’re among the 96 percent of workers covered under Social Security, you should know how the system works.
The “Retirement Benefits” resource, created by the Social Security Administration, will help you gain a better understanding of your benefits, including:
- How you qualify for Social Security benefits
- How your earnings and age can affect benefits
- What to consider in deciding when to retire
- Why you shouldn’t rely on Social Security for all your retirement income
