  1. I have set up MyAccount with Social Security. My application for benefits was made in August 2018 – it is currently still “pending”. There is no area in My Account to send a message enquiring about payments. How do I do that? I am expecting SS benefits to begin in January 2019. But I need to know if there is any information or forms etc that need to be completed so there are no delays in the payment. Please let me know to whom I should address my question.
