Social Security Entry

I have been using the yearly Social Security Benefit when entering it into FireCalc.
1,500 X 12 = 18,000

Since reading another post I am confused as to whether this is correct or should I be using the monthly number?

Re: Social Security Entry

Yearly is correct.
Often uninformed, seldom undecided.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain
