Social Security Administration LogoWe are excited to share a preview of our new website coming this year.

SSA.gov is one of our most important tools for providing service. You told us we need to make it simpler and easier to use. So, we created a new design. It was shaped by information we gathered from customer interviews. We looked more closely at how our customers seek information online, and new design best practices.

The new design – we call it our beta website – seeks to improve your online experience, so you can get to the information and services you need faster. We also include new interactive tools, like our new benefit eligibility screener. It’s a convenient way to learn if you might be eligible for benefits, without needing to know what benefit programs are available from Social Security.

We want your feedback

Your opinion is very important to us. We invite you to explore our beta website at beta.ssa.gov and to use the “Feedback” button on the right side of the screen to tell us what you think. You can visit the website on your computer, tablet, and smartphone.

The beta website is a work in progress. Some links you select may take you to webpages on the current SSA.gov. Also, we are still working on the Spanish-language version of the beta website.

What’s next?

We plan to use the feedback we receive from you over the next few months to improve the beta website. Later this year, we will replace the current SSA.gov with the beta website’s design and information.

Thank you in advance for looking at the beta website and sharing your feedback!

    If you receive SS benefits but cannot make more than $1350/month, if I start receiving dividends from older investment, is that considered income
