Individuals interested in retirement planning can use the website for the Social Security Administration to obtain their statement of earning and a benefit estimate, along with other key documents.

The online portal at socialsecurity.gov/myaccount also allows wage earners to access their Social Security statement, print an earnings record and start or change direct deposits. The site also processes changes of address and phone numbers.
