As the old adage goes, sometimes a picture says more than a thousand words. We look forward to maximizing this platform’s storytelling style of posting to share stories that help you.

Using Instagram’s vast reach of over one billion users a month, we can share information about Social Security programs and benefits with millions of people. We want to start a conversation with you and create a lasting connection. Connecting with us on social media helps you share important information and knowledge with the people you care about.

  1. I don’t know what Instagram is, however I would never use anything like Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter. Let me know what’s up your sleeve; thanks.

    Many thanks!

  3. Friday April 26th I received a call from 205-598-3121a message even though I answered stating it was Soc Sec. I as to call immediately as my SS a count was in trouble and there was a warrant going out.
    I am posting this for people to be aware of this phone number. We all know the scams are hot and heavy these days for retirees.

    • I ALSO RECEIVED A PHONE CALL THAT MY SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER WOULD BE SHUT DOWN UNLESS I CALLED THEM BACK ,I DIDNT CALL THEM BACK .
      2 PEOPLE I KNOW ALSO GOT THE PHONE CALLE .

      • Hi Kathleen. Thank you for letting us know about these calls. We do not usually make random calls. If you or anyone receives calls saying that they are from Social Security, do not give out any personal information. Suspicious calls should be reported to the Office of the Inspector General at 1-800-269-0271 or online. You can also report these scams to the Federal Trade Commission through a new site specific to Social Security scams here. We hope this help

  4. Social Security can be complex and hard to understand. The more information published, the better. Just remember, blog sites are not intended to solve specific problems. Never give out personal information, go to your local office or call 800-772-1213 if you need information.

  5. Thanks you for all your help!!

    Please continue growing and giving to all the Americans an easy ways to contact you and learn about our rights and obligations…,

  6. Thank sir for assistance my case retirement plan.gov pay deposits direct transfer to bangkok bank in new york brand service for my account holding by ach chang to be IAT online system to be Thai bath in my account holding in Thailand!

  7. We live on Social Security if it end in 2020 we will be out in the street, we only get less that $1700 per month and i have to try to get some kind of work just to make the bills so with our Social Security we won’t have a dime to live on, So as I think this is not true? I wish they would just leave the Social Security money alone it doesn’t belong to any body but the people who earned it. Stop letting any body stick there hands into it and just chop them off when they try.
    Thank you Ronald.

  9. While I use my desktop computer daily and my new smart phone occasionally, I don’t use social media. Please keep E-Mail contacts in force.

  10. Very informative post.this is my first time visit here. I found so many important stuff in your blog especially its discussion..thanks for the post! click here

  11. i was scammed and had to change my bank accounts immediately and social security said for me to leave existing accounts active until they say change them.
    no way so i guess my retirement checks will stop or maybe they will mail me the checks and i can deposit them.

  12. I am out of the country and I have asked for the 3 forms that I need a new password, canceling my medicare and requesting to use my spouse’s income. On the second request, I got only the for to cancel my Medicare. I filled it out and sent it back, that was in February 2019, they are still deducting it from my check as if I never canceled and I got no notice through email that they received it. It would be great if I could at least get my password fixed and then I’m sure I fix the rest. Any suggestions that are beyond traveling all the way back to the USA for something that I could easily fix online once getting a password fix! Or, can we apply for a new account?

  13. No doubt that we live on Social Security if it end in 2020 we will be out in the street, we only get less that $1700 per month and i have to try to get some kind of work just to make the bills so with our Social Security we won’t have a dime to live on https://www.iminathi.com/

  14. It’s so sad that you only use ELECTRONIC MEDIA, to only show your information to the public. Those many thousands, millions of Americans that live OVERSEAS for SURVIVAL purposes are not allowed to have a Social Security online account. We don’t have mail services anymore in Guatemala to receive or send any correspondence out. Local embassy doesn’t have Social Security information anymore, it’s been transferred to our embassy in Costa Rica. The cost of a phone call is International and is expensive per minute. Besides, when I did call, there is a recording that they do not answer cslls, but to send an email which gets put into a queue and takes time to wait. International Banking and the other Government agencies uses online systems accessible anywhere in the world, so WHY CAN’T SSA? We are old people who have come to our time to rest and to enjoy what time of life we have left on this planet. It’s difficult enough to be struggling through life at an old age. In conclusion, this does not Paint a pretty picture of reality in today’s times. Thank you so much for giving this option for a response, to allow us getting our flustrations out.
