Our Newly Redesigned Retirement Benefits Portal

Today, I’m excited to announce the first of several steps we’re taking to improve your experience on our website. Our newly redesigned retirement benefits portal will help you prepare for and apply for retirement.

We are working hard to continue improving our website to provide you with clear, helpful information, and easy access to our online services. Our new retirement portal is more user-friendly and easier to navigate, whether you’re ready to learn about, apply for, or manage your retirement benefits.

The redesigned portal will make it easier for you to find and read about retirement benefits, with fewer pages and clearer information. We condensed and rewrote most of the pages to make them easier to understand. The portal is optimized for mobile devices so people can learn and do what they want from wherever they want. And you can now subscribe to receive retirement information and updates.

Visit our new retirement benefits portal to find out how to Learn, Apply, and Manage retirement benefits. You also can learn how to create your own my Social Security account to see your latest Social Security Statement, review your earnings history, and receive personalized estimates of future benefits based on your real earnings.

More improvements to Social Security’s web pages are planned for later in 2020 as we continuously seek to improve your experience on our website.

    • Hi Debra. For your security, we do not have access to private information in this venue. We ask that members in our Blog community work with our offices with specific questions. 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.

  2. I applied for my Social Security benefit at age 70, on July 2nd, 2020. (I turn 70 in early November). 5 weeks later, the status still showed “processing”. I was checking every 2 days for updates. There have been none. So I called SSA today (August 11). I was told it was approved, but I would not receive notification until mid November, just after my 70th birthday, because I was already receiving Medicare benefits. This information should definitely be explained on the status page of any application status. This is easy to do, and would alleviate the anxiety applicants have on approval status.
