Join the 19 Million People who have my Social Security Accounts

A woman uses a computerAt some point in his or her life, almost every American will need, or will at least be eligible for, Social Security benefits. Our website has quickly become our newest hub for many of our customers to conduct their business with us.

Already more than half of our customers who apply for retirement or disability benefits, or who submit a Medicare claim, do so online.

Here’s why:

Our suite of online services is convenient, secure, and easy to navigate. And, we continually refine and add services.

Head to our website to find out what benefits you can apply for by using our screening tool to help identify all the Social Security programs you might be eligible for.

For example, if you applied for Social Security benefits, you can check the status of your application online.

You can also file an appeal on a decision made on your disability claim or get a replacement Medicare Card.

Maybe you want to know if you can get Extra Help with your Medicare prescription drug costs.

What about using our Retirement Estimator for a retirement estimate based on real time access to your earnings record.

Create a free my Social Security account to see all the information tailored to you.

You can view your Social Security Statement and verify your earnings records, since missing or inaccurate information could affect the amount of your future benefit.

If you need information from us to complete business with someone else, we make some of that information available with my Social Security. Download a replacement SSA-1099 or SSA-1042S for tax season, or get a letter to verify that you are, or aren’t, receiving benefits.

If you receive monthly benefits, you can easily change the address and telephone number you want to use and start or change your direct deposit information.

If you are blind or visually impaired, choose alternate ways to receive information from Social Security – whatever works best for you.

  5. I know yesterday was Thanksgiving but today Friday isn’t a federal holiday so why is it my local SSI office stayed closed and I need my check today,, not on the second. Unfair and illegally to make me wait

  6. Can one on H-1B visa having worked for 6 years & paid all dues towards SOCIAL SECURITY regularly via Employer get some kind of “retirement benefits” on leaving the job to head back to one’s own country?’

    • Hi Santosh, thanks for your question. When you work and pay Social Security taxes, you earn “credits” toward Social Security benefits. The number of credits you need to get retirement benefits depends on when you were born. If you were born in 1929 or later, you need 40 credits (usually, this is 10 years of work). If you also worked outside the country, there may be an International Agreement. Check out our Office of Earnings and International Operations web page for additional details.

      You can call us at 1-800-772-1213 for assistance or you can contact your local Social Security office. Please look for the general inquiry telephone number at the Social Security Office Locator. The number may appear under Show Additional Office Information. Please be aware that our call wait times are longer than normal. We hope this information helps.
