When estimating how much Social Security you'll receive, keep these considerations in mind

You should estimate the amount of Social Security

you will receive as part of your retirement planning strategy.

It may be difficult for older adults living solely off of Social Security to manage their finances.

Culture at Ubiquity Retirement + Savings, discusses the gap between

Social Security benefits and overall financial retirement needs.

it may not cover your bills. Traditionally, retirement has

been viewed as a three-legged stool: Social Security, pensions, and individual savings.

It is important to understand how Social Security fits

into your financial health in order to be prepared for retirement."
