  1. There are three requests in the past two months for instructions on how to use the RESET CODE that you receive in the mail. None of these requests was answered. I also have received a RESET CODE in the mail but there are no instructions on how to use it. Could you please enter clear instructions on the steps you take to use the RESET CODE that you receive in the mail from SSA. Thank you so much.

    • Hi Robert, thank you for using our blog. When you sign in 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.

    • Hi Mark, thank you for using our blog. An activation code is provided after visiting a Social Security field office with identification. A representative in the office will verify your identity and issue you a letter containing an activation code. Our field offices are currently closed.

  2. I need to change my withholding deduction. Cannot speak to a live person with TRS, only recordings. Same with SS.

    Also, I sent my tax return in on January 31, 2020. As of May 19, 2020, I still have not received it. Cannot speak to live person, only recording.

    COVID 19 is a lousy excuse for not answering the phone.
