The Social Security Administration pays retirement, disability and survivors benefits to workers and their families and administer the Supplemental Security Income program. They also issue Social Security numbers.


Compute Your Own Benefit Estimate - Detailed Calculator

The Office of the Actuary, Social Security Administration, produces a Social Security benefit estimate computer program. The interactive program works on IBM PC's and compatibles running Microsoft Windows operating system version 3.1, Windows 95, or Windows NT version 3.5 or 4.0. It produces the Social Security "primary insurance amount" (PIA) for an old-age, survivor, or disability benefit, given the characteristics of a particular worker (such as birth date, past earnings, and type of benefit). It also produces the "maximum family benefit", the actuarial reduction or increment factor (for early or delayed retirement), and the monthly benefit amount (MBA). The benefit can be computed for either a new entitlement or a recomputation after initial entitlement. Summary results are presented on the screen; there is an option to print out details of the computations.
