While the Social Security Administration is not widely considered to be the picture of efficiency, they have made some changes lately that can better serve claimants. Once such change is the ability to calculate your benefit online prior to application. Go to http://ssa.gov/ and in the upper left hand corner select Get Your Social Security Statement Online. This will prompt you to make an account. Once you have created an account it will tell you an estimation of your projected benefits. This is crucial information and it can be good to bring a print out of this page to your first consultation with an attorney. If not, we can help you set up an account too. An experienced attorney should be able to walk you through the process every step of the way, and a calculation of your benefit can be critical in strategizing for your case and making plans for the future.
