    I love to read about Social Security Matters and was retired from my work (Readers Digest) in 1993.

    How can I make an appointment to see an agent so I can establish an online account? What kinds of documents do I have to bring with me to the appointment. By the way, I tried to create an online account several times without success.

    How do I receive today if I retire

  7. Evelyn E.

    I retired May 1, 1980. at the age of 80 years. Why am I receiving this information? I don’t know if you are a scam or the actual AARP. If you are legitimate you would know I’m retired

    • Camille

      this is not aarp its social security and I would imagine you signed up for this as I did

    • RAK

      If you retired in 1980 at the age of 80 – you are now 118. Wow!

    I would like to know if I can draw off one of my husband’s there not retired one of them is 60 and I am 62 and I’m fixing to retire I was wanting to know if I can straw off one of those one of those two marriages

    I have been trying to help my 88 year old mother re-establish her online account but can never succeed. Apparently, or so an SSA agent advised, this may be because of her age. The agent advised that she and I must go to a SSA office to do so. This is not convenient for us, particularly since we live in different cities. Is there some convenient way for us to accomplish this online?

    • Snarky

      Yes. Go visit her and together do it on line.

  10. Walter D.

    Can I get both Social Security Disability and Social Security?
