Social Security Benefits

How do I find about more about my Social Security benefits?

The Social Security Administration has information about your benefits. You should know that the retirement age for receiving full benefits is slowly going to increase under current law.

To find out about the status of your Social Security benefit, get a Social Security Personal Earnings and Benefit Statement from Social Security.

To learn more about whether Social Security benefits will be taxed, check out the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) site for more information.  Social Security does deduct a portion of your benefit if you earn wages above certain limitations.  The IRS has an excellent site that describes the different kinds of retirement income and the tax implications of each.

The IRS also has information about tax forms for seniors who are receiving Social Security benefits.
