    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.

    I will be 70 in November and prefer to begin drawing Social Security at that time. If I apply on line, can I give the month of November as my start date to begin receiving benefits?

      Hi Usman. Thanks for your question. You can use our online Retirement Estimator to see estimates of your future retirement benefits. You can also create a personal my Social Security account to review estimates of your retirement, disability, and survivors benefits, as well as your earnings record, and the estimated Social Security and Medicare taxes you’ve paid. We hope this helps.

      Hi, Joleen. If you are receiving Social Security retirement or disability, you can create a personal my Social Security account to change your address online. If you are receiving Supplemental Security Income, you should contact your local office immediately. We hope this helps.

      Hi Donna. Sorry to hear that you are having difficulties with your my Social Security account. Applying for retirement benefits online does not require a my Social Security account. However, we offer various ways for you to reset your password. See our Frequently Asked Questions web page for more details. Hopefully you’ll be able to access your account soon.
