You may not know this, but April is National Financial Literacy Month.
In an effort to help increase your financial literacy, we are extending an invitation to join the Social Security Administration and BRAG in raising awareness for the importance of planning and saving for retirement.
The SSA is holding National my Social Security Week from April 4th through 13th. As a part of their initiative, we invite you to create a my Social Security online account. This will assist you in your retirement planning, as well as give you an easy way to track your benefits.
Surprisingly, it is fast, free, and effective; three words you don’t often associate with the federal government!
Please take a moment and open a my Social Security account now at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.

Social Security benefits are not intended to be your only income source when you retire. On average, Social Security will replace about 40 percent of your annual pre-retirement earnings. You will need other savings, investments, pensions, or retirement accounts to live comfortably. Use your online Social Security Statement, available in your personal account, as a tool for planning your financial future.
