Mushers embark on a race from Anchorage to Nome that takes between nine and 15 days. Contestants bear sub-zero tem- peratures with gale-force winds that can cause wind chilis as low as negative 100 degrees Fahren- heit! It takes endurance, prepara- tion, and careful planning to make it from start to finish• The same can be said for your race toward retirement and Social Security• No one would hit the trail without being ready for the challenges. Similarly, no worker today should be navigating to- ward retirement without a little bit of preparing, planning, and stick-to-itiveness• Choosing your steps is as important as selecting the right sled dogs. Your first step in plan- ning for a comfortable retirement is to look at your Social Security Statement, which you can do online easily with a.my Social Security account. The online Statement is easy to use and pro- vides estimates you should con- sider in planning for your retire- ment. It provides estimates for disability and survivors benefits, making the Statement an impor- tant financial planning tool. Your Statement allows you to review and ensure your earnings are ac- curately posted to your Social Security record. This feature is important because Social Secu- rity benefits are based on aver- age earnings over your lifetime• If the information is incorrect, or you have earnings missing from your record, you may not receive all of the benefits to which you are entitled in the future• Visit www.socialsecurity.gov/ myaccount to set up a my Social Security account and get started. Before heading into the snowy terrain, you want to make sure you have prepared for a num- ber of different possible obstacles on the trail. For retirement plan- ning, you'll want to test out the Retirement Estimator to see how changes in your income, retire- ment age, and other variables may change your overall plan. Use our Retirement Estimator, where you can get a personalized, instant estimate of your future retirement benefits using differ- ent retirement ages and scenarios. Visit the Retirement Estimator at www.socialsecurity.gov/estima- tor. Out in the cold, you'll be thankful for the provisions you've brought along. In retire- ment, you'll understand why it was so important for you to save early on. The sooner you begin your financial planning, the bet- ter off you will be. Social Secu- rity replaces about 40 percent of the average worker's pre-retire- ment earnings, but most financial advisors say that you will need 70 percent or more of pre-retire- ment earnings to live comfort- ably. You also will need other sav- ings, investments, pensions or re- tirement accounts to make sure you have financial security to live comfortably when you retire. Visit the Ballpark Estimator for tips to help you save. You'll find it at www.choosetosave.org/ ballpark. Use our online library of publications as your trail map O r guidebook to help you wh¢,a:! comes to planning for retirement: Check out When To Start Receiv- ing Retirement Benefits. It and many other useful publications can be found at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs. As you mush, mush, mush toward retirement, remember that it's not about the destination, but all about the journey. Spending a little time to prepare along the way will make all the difference when you cross the finish line into retirement.
