MY SOCIAL SECURITY ACCOUNT
Open a my Social Security Account to learn about benefits.
Go to the Social Security web site www.socialsecurity.gov and enter "my Social Security account" in the upper right hand search box.
Setting up a my Social Security account is easy. To create an account, an individual provides some personal information and answers to some questions that only they are likely to know. Next step is to create a username and password to access their online account. This process keeps personal Social Security information private.
With a my Social Security account, members of the public with Internet access can obtain benefit verification information, update their personal information and start or change direct deposit of their benefit payment.
Even if an individual does not receive benefits, they may use a my Social Security online account to review their Social Security statement, earnings record and estimates of retirement, disability, and survivors benefits.
Only you can set up an account using your own personal information and for your own exclusive use.
