How SSA.gov Helps YouReading Time: 2 Minutes
Last Updated: July 20, 2023
We’re excited to announce that we’ve added two screening tools to our redesigned website! SSA.gov provides you with many ways to learn about our programs and do business with us online. These tools are designed to help you determine your eligibility for benefits and help you request a replacement Social Security card.
You can use our Benefits Screener on the Check Eligibility for Social Security Benefits page to determine which benefits you may be eligible for, typically in 10 minutes or less! Whether you’re considering retirement, disability, survivor, or other types of benefits, this tool will guide you in the right direction.
To use the screener, select the “Start” button and answer a few questions about what’s going on in your life. You will immediately get a response that tells you which benefits you may be eligible for based on your answers.
Our benefits are there for you when you:
- Age and retire.
- Can’t work because of a disability.
- Lose a spouse.
- Have difficulty paying for essentials like food, clothing, and housing.
Benefits are also available to young children who lose a parent.
See what benefits you may be eligible for today!
Card Replacement Screener
Our other tool is the Card Replacement Screener on our Replace Social Security card page. If you need a physical Social Security card, you can use this screener to determine the best way to replace it.
Depending on your situation, you may be able to request a replacement Social Security card without visiting a local office. Select Answer a few questions on the Replacement Card page to get started. Even if you can’t complete the process online and have to visit an office, you can still save yourself time by starting with the online application.
Requesting a replacement Social Security card is free. In most situations, you do not need to present a physical card – just knowing your Social Security number is usually enough. But if you do need the physical card, you can use this online screener to get started!
It is safe and secure to conduct your business with us online. The redesigned website—with its online tools—is the quickest, easiest, and most convenient way to begin. Please share this information with your friends and family—and post it on social media.
