  2. I am not satisfied with the with-holding amount of $135 from my benefits. That is too high for me. What options do I have? I need Dentures and glasses. My prescriptions are free. What is the $135 covering EVERY month I don’t go to doctor. All my tests for my age are done for 3 years.

    • If someone has worked in the United States for enough years, the spouse (or former spouse, or widow or widower) and minor children qualify. for benefits. In the case of a divorce, the couple had to have been married at least 10 years.

  7. Yeah that used to work until a social security employee erased my email and user name. I can no longer use the my social security page. No I can not get to the local office!!! Give me my dang access back!! I don’t care what the credit bureau says, after all they have been hacked several times and my identity has been stolen!!

  8. I would very much make a my Social Security account on line, but I live outside the USA in Bangkok Thailand. I tried at first to make a account but it rejected. Is there any plans in the future to let person living outside the USA to be able to have some access to their SS information?

  9. You said that my amt. of SS would increase. You sent me a second ck. for 138. for February but haven’t sent one for March…. you said it would increase each month after that…. can you please tell me what the heck is true.

  10. I have been informed that my social security number has been accessed illegally and I have been the target of identity theft. Please install an alert on my number.

  11. I am not able to access account. They do no recognize me because I did not provide a change of address to social Security when I moved 3 years ago. I see up my account years before I moved but didnt remember all the places that o needed to notify. I cant access it to make the change. OS there any way to solve this online?.

  12. I just filled out the SSI to create my account and I don’t recall receiving a code. Perhaps I exited too soon ?

  13. please note my change of address

    WAS 9436 SW Wood Parkway, Portland, Or 97219

  14. I am 58 and disabled since 2015. I was in the middle of amy divorce when I filed. I’ve spoken to several reps and still don’t get answers. I am divorced after 30 years and will not receive Maintenance until my home is sold. Yes.. I agreed to that.. I basically thought his promises were true.. Not even close..MY x husband made substantially more than I did. I recieve $744.00 monthly and had to apply for SNAP benefits. I barely make ends meet. It’s been over 2 years since my divorce and I have to depend on money from family to survive.. It’s Very hard to do and embarrassing for me because I was so independent and stubborn. PLEASE.. Can I recieve benefits from my x-husband. I’ve been so gullible and now.. If I could ever go back.. I would have NEVER ever signed the divorce agreement with what I know now. He’s actually retired and on 3/4 pension from a LOD injury. He recieves $8.990.00
    Monthly. He pays some of the expenses for the home but always late.. I live in the primary home. The home never got approved by build it back. They said I didn’t redpond with some information.. Not true.. They lost my papers. I fought but no luck so my home needs extensive repairs and I cannot afford this. Please, can I get sime of my benefits from my x-husband.. I need solid advice ASAP
    Thank you

    • The earliest you can get benefits as a former spouse is age 62.
      That would also be the earliest you can get benefits as a current spouse. The disability benefit on your own record is what’s currently payable. Have you considered Supplemental Security Income (SSI)?

    • Hi, LuAnn. We are sorry to hear about your condition and situation. To be eligible for divorced spouse benefits, you had to be married to your former spouse for at least 10 years, be age 62 or older, and you cannot be eligible for a higher benefit on your own record. For more information, visit our Benefits Planner: If You Are Divorced web page. You may be eligible to receive social services from the state in which you live. These services include free meals, housekeeping help, transportation, or help with other problems. To get information about services in your area and find out if you qualify, you will need to contact your state or local social services or welfare office. We hope this helps!

  15. How do I have my account that I was trying to set up online reset,because it got messed up before I finished it and now won’t let me signup

  16. I have not received my 1099 for 2018. I have asked and was told that i would receive it as of last week! I have not been successful setting up an account. My vpn is not operating properly! Public service makes me nervous! Some of the questions that are asked: i simply don’t know nor remember. candyvivian987@icloud.com

  17. I can not get into my information and I need a replacement tax benefit statement. I tried to go onto my social security to get an account but it wont recognize me. I need it today!

  18. why i cant sign in my ss acct
    i was in the office on 4/11 on the ss in staten island and they told i can sign in after few days

  19. I need to now more about claiming from my exspouse to whom I was married for over 20 years. I am now 72 and claiming under my own name. As a student and homemaker, I stupidly worked as a home baby sitter and odd jobs.
    He had funds moved from our savings and Social Security –moved them into his Federal Government retirement. At our divorce, I was supposed to get a share of his retirement. His social is I believe for Robert Lewis James.
    Can you please help me find our what to do? I need to cut back on work for health reasons and age.
    thank you. Linda Gibson

  20. I’m curious as to why when using My Soc Sec Account it does not allow me to request a replacement card online. Recently Georgia was added to the list of acceptable states, but mine still says contact the local office. This implies that I may have the same issue, in a few years, when I apply for Medicare?

  21. I think that Social Security is a big Joke to me Because they like to go into My Family’s past when I don’t have my Mother and Dad anymore .

    • Hi Mai-linh. Thank you for your question. After you sign in to your my Social Security account, you can update your email address. After inputting your username and password, you will be at the security code screen. If you receive your security code via email only, then indicate that you cannot access the options listed above and need to reset where you receive security codes. We will then send you a letter with a reset code and instructions.

  22. I am trying to update my address with social security, I was over 1 hour on hold with no answer and almost 1 hour online trying to set up an account. I have tried again this morning trying to set up an account online. You have some information in your security that does not match who I am, so you block me out. I would appreciate it if you would get your information corrected. You sent a letter to my old address, which was forwarded to me to my new address. I am trying to follow the directions of the letter, with no success. Please help.

    • Hi, Mark. First, realize that you may not need a replacement card. You will rarely need to show it. Knowing the Social Security number is what is important. To see if you’re eligible to apply for a replacement Social Security card online or to learn more on the process and what documents you will need to get a card please visit our Social Security Number and Card page. Keep in mind all submitted documents must be either originals or copies certified by the issuing agency and must (unless otherwise indicated) have been issued within the last two years. We cannot accept photocopies or notarized copies of documents. Once you’ve submitted all the needed documents, it can take up to 10 business days from the date we received the application to mail a replacement card. We hope this helps.

  23. My name is Angel Flores an the purpose of this request it is to obtain help in correctly credited my payments.to the ssa.
    The main problem goes to the fact that all my payments taked by the IRS was credited to a wrong number,but if your office search in their records will find that the number in possession of your office it is the correct one,but the one the IRS was using it is erroneous.Since it has been a long time since I make the last payment to the IRS I do not have any document as W-2 forms but I can provide all the information of the places I work as well as the periods,salaries,and addresses of the companies.and to begin let me say the two main cities are Memphis,TN, and San Francisco,CA.
