The average Social Security check in 2020 is $1,503.
Figuring out how much you can expect every month when you retire depends on a few factors.
The size of your payment will be based on your income from your working years, the year you were born and your age when you decide to start receiving benefits.
Luckily, CNBC did the math for a wide range of salaries, and we can estimate your future benefits if you make between $30,000 and $100,000 a year.
Remember: Social Security was not envisioned as your sole source of money for retirement, and the totals are always changing.
