Detailed benefits calculator

" detailed" should calculate your estimated monthly benefit based on the month you choose. I could not get anything other than an estimate of retirement at age 62. Why download and enter all the data if you cannot run various date calculations? Called the phone line waited by 30+ minutes and got a less than pleasant and very less than helpful SSA employee. She claimed she could not run the calculation for me because she would "be here all day". I did get her to reveal that each month that you wait will add $5-7 to the estimate. Why call it a "detailed Calculator" if you can't get the details?
