Missing Your Social Security Statements?

Have you noticed you haven't received one of those green and white social security statements lately?  That's because last April, as a cost-saving measure, the Social Security Administration (SSA) stopped mailing them out.  Later this year they plan to launch an online statement service, although the launch date is still forthcoming.

In the meantime, if you're looking for an estimate of your retirement benefits, try the SSA's retirement estimator. It's interesting to see what you've got - assuming of course it's still solvent when it's your time to retire!
