Paul is now part of the fourth generation in America that is involved in farming and hopes the next generation will be involved also. Through his blog he provides analysis and insight to farmer tax questions.
The Social Security Administration has a nice retirement calculator on their website that will project what your monthly social security benefit will be if you retire at:
The calculator takes into account your current age, last year's income. You can also tell it how much you think you will earn each year until retirement and what age you are planning on retiring at and it will calculate the monthly benefit.
This is a nice feature to have and now you do not have to wait for the annual letter to show up from Social Security letting you know what your benefits might be. However, you should review that letter each year to verify that Social Security has the right amount of earnings listed. I have seen several mistakes on these letters.
