If you are married, you and your spouse should each fill out your own Ballpark E$timate
worksheet taking your marital status into account when entering your Social Security
benefit in Step 2.
The non-interactive ballpark provides estimated Social Security benefits based on
several income ranges. For a more personalized figure, use the appropriate benefit figure
from "Your Social Security Statement." All Americans over the age of 24 not
currently receiving Social Security Benefits receive a personalized statement annually
three months before their birthday. If you haven't received your statement, contact the
Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213 or online at http://www.ssa.gov/.
If you don't know how much you will receive annually from your traditional employer
pension or defined benefit plan, contact the benefits or human resources professional in
If you anticipate receiving income from an annuity in retirement, enter the amount you
expect to receive annually in "Other" on line 2 of the non-interactive version
or line 14 of the interactive version.
