Since this estimate is based on the amounts that you are now providing, it may differ from your actual benefit amount. To be as accurate as possible, you may want to refer to pay stub(s) and/or Form W-2(s) you have received from your employer(s). If you refer to a Form W-2, you will need to convert your gross pay from a yearly total into quarterly amounts based on when you were paid.
