The AARP Social Security Q&A Tool is an easy-to-use tool that provides answers to your most frequently-asked questions about Social Security retirement benefits. Over the years, AARP experts have answered more than eleven thousand Social Security-related questions, and we’ve included the best and most relevant in this tool.
Simply enter a term related to your question, and you’ll see results for that topic. The more questions submitted to Social Security Q&A Tool, the more information we’ll have to adjust the tool to better predict and answer your questions in the future. The tool is an exclusive resource for registered users of AARP.org and will be updated regularly with new content.
Here are a few examples to help you get started:
