social security Instagram account image Over the last decade, the way Social Security communicates with you has evolved to include electronic messages, through our social media channels. We spread our message about a lifetime of protections on Twitter, LinkedIn, our Facebook page,  and on our YouTube channel.

We are proud to add Instagram as our newest social media channel. As we do on the others , we share information and resources on our Instagram page that can help you and your loved ones — with a visual focus. 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.

Check out our Instagram page today! You can follow our posts, comment on them, quote them, repost them, and help us spread the message. Follow @SocialSecurity for valuable content or, as they say on the ‘Gram’, #instagood posts.

    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.

        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

    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 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.
