Many people notice a portion of their paycheck being deducted each week for social security, but many don't track that money once it's been taken out. The Social Security Administration has several tools to help you have a better understanding of where you're at with your retirement savings.
Jack Myers, Public Affairs Specialist with the SSA says one way they keep track of your retirement savings with social security is through your earnings record.
Myers also says regardless of your age, it's never too early for those who are working to start keeping an eye on their social security benefits.
Myers appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
