April is Financial Literacy Month, a month focused on educating people about the importance of planning for a secure financial future. Social Security is a vital part of any financial plan, and we have online tools to help you understand your potential Social Security benefits and how they fit into your financial plans.

You should periodically review your Social Security Statement through your personal my Social Security account. Your Statement is an easy-to-read record of your earnings that determine your future benefits. You’ll want to verify that your recorded earnings are correct as they affect the amount you could receive. Your Statement also provides a summary of the estimated benefits you and your family could receive, including potential retirement, disability, and survivors benefits.

Start focusing on your financial literacy today. Log in to your my Social Security account and view your Statement.  If you don’t have an account, create one today.

    I receive SSDI and have still NOT RECEIVED MY STIMULUS! I read to go to the Get My Payment Portal to check the status. It has an error message basically saying that the IRS hasn’t updated my info or I’m not eligible, which is not the case. I get my SSDI through DIRECT EXPRESS. I’m being told that it’ll be here April 24, then it’s the end of April or beginning of May, and now it’s mid May. I have questions and I’ve called SS Office, Direct Express, The Bank, I’ve asked Family & Friends, and professionals. I’ve started to enter in my info on the NON-FILIERS PORTAL only to be told that no one knows what to do. I’ve called the IRS on several different numbers only to be hung up on. I meet the eligibility requirements. My AGI for 2019 & 2020 are below the $12,400 mark, I am not required to file taxes, and I can’t be claimed as a dependent. I don’t owe $ to creditors. I NEED THIS STIMULUS CHECK!!! I have nowhere to go to enter in my Savings Account info so that I can get this check sooner. And I have no way of knowing if the IRS needs info for me
    Where’s my Stimulus Payment? Who do I ask for assistance in entering data that the IRS may need? When will I receive my Stimulus Payment? How will I receive my Stimulus Payment? HELP! NEITHER PORTAL IS WORKING FOR ME! I HAVE NO ONE WHO KNOWS WHAT I SHOULD DO!!! HELP, HELP, HELP!!!

    I got my stimulus check on the 26th of April. Right after I paid for the $2.5 trillion price tag of Speed Queen v. Speaker of the House on the 23rd by proposing to devaluate the US dollar 15% for a $2.5 trillion print-out under under 19USC§4421 and 22USC§5301 and the Revised estimates: effect of changes in rates of exchange and inflation Report of the (fat) Secretary-General A/74/585 of 11 December 2019 pursuant to Approved (three mile run) resources for peacekeeping operations for the period from 1 July to 30 June A/C.5/73/21 (2019-2020) Add. 1 to make the leap over economic depression since A/C.5/70/24 (2016-2017) in less than 42 months (Revelation 13:10) by exempting only corticosteroid inhalers under the Montreal Protocol to achieve 2020 ozone goals, diagnose and treat the COVID-19 pandemic for more than a dab of hydrocortisone crème to the nose and chest. 26USC§4612(b) is to be amended by replacing it with- In addition, there is imposed a flat 5% energy export tax (feet) by the UN Arrears and Certain Iranian Assets Bill of 2020. The United States could devaluate as much as 50% to make China the richest nation on earth. Otherwise, t-bonds shall withdraw every penny of this $2.5 trillion or more bailout above 3% of GDP from the stock exchange exacerbating the size and duration of the viral economic depression, as they have done so many times before. Attempts to evade and defeat taxes whether devaluation pay-out or t-bonds method is used to bailout the bucket must be absolutely prohibited under 26USC7201. Congress unlawfully assembled to counterfeit and must not be allowed to do their silly big money Alzheimers again because, there is more COVID-19 out there since voter registration B&E struck and neither fat, nor people with Alzheimers are able to account for their fat induced dreaming as indication of stroke risk. CARES Act giving is ultra vires, without statutory authority or mathematical ability to pay for the costs already incurred by evidently partially paid tax rebates, and ultra-crooked forgivable payroll loan that won’t kick in until the investors pull-out in mid-June due to not being investment grade. The President and Congress are incompetent, they have been caught counterfeiting on speed and now amphetamine, ephedrine and henbane to sleep at night and be berserk about COVID-19, and cannot fulfill the promises of their unlawful assembly in excess of 50 persons, because they did not first agree to devaluate the dollar, and there are insufficient funds to pay the obligations they have already incurred. They must stop their insolvent attempts to evade and defeat taxes under 26USC7201 and get on track to tax the rich to end child poverty by 2020 and all poverty by 2030
