Planning to save for retirement might not be a priority. Luckily, you’ll have some help from Social Security. Different salaries can drastically raise or lower your Social Security benefits. Here’s how much you can expect, based on six different salaries.
The average Social Security check in 2020 is $1,503.
Figuring out how much you can expect every month when you retire depends on a few criteria.
The size of your payment will be based on income from your working years, the year you were born and the age when you decide to start receiving benefits.
Luckily, CNBC did the math for a wide range of salaries, and we can estimate your future benefits if you make between $30,000 and $100,000 per year.
Remember: Social Security was not envisioned as your sole source of money for retirement, and the totals are always changing.
Watch this video for a breakdown of how much you will get and how your monthly benefit will be calculated based on multiple different salaries.

  • IDK... They take 12% of your paycheck (you pay half, company pays half) and they are still running out of money... Better to let me keep that 6-12% and invest over my working life time...

    William RodriguezWilliam RodriguezOy oldin
  • I know it's likely someone won't respond, but I'm still curious how the age you retire affects your benefits, because the later you wait to receive benefits, the more you get. Does it affect your bends, or how does it work?

    Andrew OrtizAndrew OrtizOy oldin
    • It doesn't affect the bends. Instead, you just get a surplus amount in terms of percentage based on how long you wait. For instance, you wait an extra year and you get an extra 8% of whatever you otherwise would've gotten.,of%20one%20percent%20per%20month.

  • Social security is a scam nowadays. Born after 1980 and my pension will be a joke. I'm near 40s and I own nothing. A good chunk of my salary is going in taxes and social security. That money would do a lot for me right now, I could make a morgage for a house, save for my kids. Not some coins in 25 years.

  • As a millennial, I don't even factor in Social Security into my retirement. I'll be lucky if they give me even $200 per month. Americas changing demographics no longer allow the current social security system to be sustainable into the long term

    • only if the government doesn't pay back the money they got loaned from SS. So really everyone's just fussing over nothing because the loans they took out are 100% back by the government. SS isnt "running out" the government just has to pay itself back. Republicans just want to shut it down so they dont have to pay it back
