I'm a military retiree and doing some research to determine how and if financial planners consider a military pension and projected social security benefits as assets when computing net worth.  Does anybody have any insights into this?

Pension and social security is not considered part of your networth. Networth equals assets minus liabilities. However, a pension and social security would be used to determine financial readiness and projecting any shortfalls.
