Retirement Planning

With baby boomers beginning to retire, there are a myriad of questions from employees on how to prepare for and what to expect from Social Security. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has created a special resource page that includes an online retirement planner that lets employees compute estimates of their future Social Security benefit. It also provides useful information for employees on factors affecting retirement benefits, such as military service, household earnings, and federal employment.
