Today is “Check Your Statement Day,” one of the days during National my Social Security Week and Financial Literacy Month when you can get serious about planning for your financial future. Social Security has been here for more than 80 years, securing your today and tomorrow with information, tools, and resources to meet your changing needs and lifestyles. And what’s easier for you than going online to access an important part of your financial planning routine?

One of the advantages of opening a my Social Security account is having access to your Social Security Statement instantly. With your Statement, you can review estimates of your future retirement, disability, and survivors benefits, as well as the Social Security and Medicare taxes you’ve paid. We base your future benefits on your recorded earnings, so you should access your Statement once a year to verify the amounts that we posted are correct. You can also check it whenever you have a change of employment or wish to verify any changes to your benefit estimate.

Join the millions who regularly check their Statement. Log in or create a my Social Security account today at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount. And then, help spread the word about “Check Your Statement Day” by telling your family and friends!

    Difficulty getting my account created on ssa.gov –

    First I tried the web site.

    I tried it with or without the extra security option (with info from W-2) but I didn’t succeed (also I can’t find the W-2 any more, but I do have the information I need from it, I think.) Either way, It says an account can not be created.

    So I called the number.

    Phoned in on Friday, waited an hour on hold (because I did not know to say “help desk”). I’m informed I need to unfreeze my credit on Experian, so I did. I made it for 4 days. Today is the last day.

    Phoned in Tuesday morning. Office is open from 7-10 Eastern. I’m in Central time zone, so I called in at 6:04. The message said the office opens at 7 in this state, so I started to think I am calling an office in Texas. But then I said “help desk” and then I just got a recording saying they open at 7 Eastern Time.

    Apparently they didn’t. I guess the traffic is bad this morning. Awesome.

    I started to wonder if I should take it personally.
