people cheering Every year during the month of July, Major League Baseball celebrates its All-Star Game or Midsummer Classic. The game marks the mid-point of the baseball season. The teams, comprising the most prominent players of the season as chosen by the fans, will play for bragging rights and home field advantage in the World Series.

The first All-Star Game was played in 1933. Two years later, another American institution was created: Social Security. Like baseball, this agency is synonymous with our country’s great values. Our programs, such as retirement, disability, Supplemental Security Income, and Widow(er)s’ benefits provide insurance for workers and a better quality of life for retirees and the disabled, along with their children and families.

Each of our programs is a hall of fame legend in the public service arena. Our online services lead the league in customer satisfaction.

Your personal my Social Security  account gets you started by putting you on first. It’s your gateway to many of our online services whether you receive Social Security benefits or not. Go online and check what you can do with your personal my Social Security  account.

On second, the Social Security Statement keeps track of your earnings during your working years. It provides estimates of your future retirement, disability, and survivors benefits as well as tracking the Social Security and Medicare taxes you’ve paid.

On third is our online application, which puts the Opening Day of your retirement at your fingertips. You can complete it in as little as 15 minutes from any location, even the stadium!

At home plate, the veteran, our Retirement Estimator, lets you estimate your retirement benefits based on your Social Security earnings. It lets you play with different dates and ages so that you can find the perfect date to retire.

Our All-Star online services make sure nothing gets past you. Not your ideal retirement date, not any of your earnings, not even the opportunity to apply online while watching the Midsummer Classic and enjoying…what else? Your peanuts and crackerjacks, of course.

Social Security is with you through life’s journey, and when you’re ready to retire, our All-Star players have got you covered. Open your my Social Security  account today. It’s a sure victory.
