    • We are sorry for the inconvenience, Gildo. The my Social Security authentication system requires address verification as one of the essential criteria for issuing an account. People with APO/FPO/DPO addresses can create an account overseas, but our system does not support registration and account creation for users with a foreign address yet. However, you do not need a U.S. address to access our website. Please contact your localFederal Benefits Unit for any assistance related to Social Security benefits. Also, our Office of International Operations home page provides more information to assist our customers living abroad. We hope this helps.

    • Most of the fraudsters on disability claim they can’t leave their house. Creating and account let’s you manage your Social Security from home and you don’t have to go to the SSA office.

      • And you would know this…how? From TV pundits and radio show hosts, politicians bent on ending Social Security and the gossip you see in online comment boards and nefarious websites, clearly. There’s so much more to applying for Social Security Disability insurance than just filling out a form online. It can’t be done entirely online for your information, just so you know.

    • Hi, Mark. 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, Monday through Friday, between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., for assistance. Generally, you will have a shorter wait if you call later in the day. You can also contact your local Social Security office. We hope this helps.

  1. The message center on our SSS online account should be a two-way communication so that we can email our concerns directly to SSA. Presently right now we can only read, we can not reply or send emails.

  3. I have tried to log into my account as I have gotten notice of changes by my emails but when I try to log in with the log in remembered in my computer and it tells me my name and password is not correct. Below on this form I clicked on the name blank and my computer filled in the correct name and email correctly- so do not know why I cannot log in to see new announcements I receive on line.

    • Hi, Frank. If you work and are full retirement age or older, you may keep all of your benefits, no matter how much you earn, starting with the month you reach your full retirement age. However, if you are younger than full retirement age and make more than the yearly earnings limit, this can reduce the number of payments you receive through the year. For 2019 that limit is $17,640. If you applied and received benefits prior to attainment of full retirement age, and work part-time thereafter you will be considered “retired” only if your monthly earnings are $1,470 or less. Also, if your earnings will be over the limit for the year but you will be retired for part of the year, we have a special rule that applies to earnings for one year. Please visit our Retirement Planner: Getting Benefits While Working for more information. If you have specific questions about your situation, please call our toll-free number at 1-800-772-1213 and speak with one of our agents. Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. We hope this helps.

  4. I am semi retired. I work three days a week, 87 hours per month. At age 62 I applied for my social security because I had no income at the time. I pay an inordinate amount of money into social security each year from my earned wages of under $12,000.
    According to social security, once you apply early, you are stuck with collecting only a fraction of social security benefits paid into the system even if you still work.
    How is that fair? Let alone legal, when as long as I work I am increasing my yearly social security account, but I won’t be able to collect more per month and year.
    Why can’t I reapply when I reach my full retirement age in 2020 when I reach 66?
    At $561.00, I will never be able to fully retire and survive. I’m feeling mighty resentful with social security’s stagnant benefit award restrictions.🤔

    Sincerely,

    • You will receive all the money withheld from age 62-66 via a larger monthly payment after reaching full retirement age. Here’s an idea: before you criticize how Social Security works, why not read a little information about how it works? You’re right here on their website anyway. Just search your subject or click on the links. No excuse not to know the fscts.

  5. Dear sirs,
    I ask you why we don´t have an open acces to “My Social Securiry Account” overseas, I have an overseas address, that is why I can´t open my account, they ask you to have an USA address only. Please give us an opportunity to have an account with an overseas address.
