  1. I created an online account and was able to edit my profile for an address change. My wife created an account also, but there is no Profile tab on the overview page. How can she edit her profile?

    • Hi Robert, thank you for using our blog. Only Social Security beneficiaries or SSI recipients will have the “My Profile” tab, which displays the individual’s name, date of birth, last four digits of the Social Security Number, contact information, and direct deposit information from our records. We hope this helps.

  2. This does not answer the question…Where do I put a reset code?

    Instructions in the reset letter I received are very unclear. Someone really needs to match instructions to the website and save us all a lot of time.

    Thank you.

    • Hi Rosemary, thank you for using our blog. When you sign in to your my Social Security account with your username and password, it will then ask if you received a reset letter. You select “Yes, let’s begin” . The reset code is issued when you need to change the second factor authentication method associated with your information.

      If you forgot your password, and the password reset questions didn’t work, we can send a temporary password in some circumstances. Check out our Frequently Asked Questions web page for details on how to retrieve or change your username or password. We hope this helps.

  4. I am trying to check my retire benefits.
    but have forgotten my pass word.
    the system will not let me in to the system.

  5. Hello,
    I have been trying to get onto my account. I had two letters with a code to change my password sent to me by mail. I tried both of them. Neither one of the codes would work.
    I am on disability and I took out short and long time disability with the company I was working for. Not knowing I was sick at the time I took the policy out. I guess the good Lord was taking care of me.The check would be considered a third party check.
    I have a company that I worked for 2006 or 2007 asking that I send them a up to dated benefit verification letter. I have a deadline that it would need to be there by. Is there anyway I might be able to get that letter as well a new password that works.
    I would certainly appreciate any help.
    Best Regards
