October 8, 2019 • By

" "my Social Security is your online gateway to Social Security. There’s never been a better time to open or access your my Social Security account. We’ve added several new features. These features include:

  • The new Retirement Calculator compares retirement benefit estimates based on your selected date or age to begin receiving benefits with retirement estimates for ages 62, Full Retirement Age (FRA), and The user can also input expected future income for inclusion in the estimate.
  • The new Representative Payee Portal lets representative payees conduct their own business or manage direct deposit, wage reporting, and annual reporting for their beneficiaries.
  • The Message Center in all my Social Security accounts now allows you to opt out of getting agency notices by mail that are available online. This includes annual cost-of-living adjustments and the income-related monthly adjustment amount benefit rate increases notices.

my Social Security account holders will still be able to request a replacement Social Security card, check the status of their Social Security application, set up or change direct deposit information, get a proof of income letter, change their address, and more.

Plan for your future and manage your present with a my Social Security account today!

      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.

    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.

    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.
    Thank

      Hi Rosario. Thank you for your question. The my Social Security account authentication system requires address verification as one of the essential criteria for issuing an account. Our system does not support registration and account creation for users with a foreign address yet. We recommend that individuals living outside the United States contact the local Federal 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.

      Hi Saul. Unfortunately, your question is a bit more complex than we can handle in this forum. For your security, we do not have access to information about your account in this venue. To get additional information on Medicare premium payments, please visit Medicare’s internet page. You may also contact your local Medicare SHIP (State Health Insurance Program Coordinator) to discuss your options. We hope this helps.
