These days, with busy schedules and constant multi-tasking, it seems the most common kind of juggling for people is managing the multiple chores and obligations of everyday life. Social Security created a suite of online services that makes doing business with them a snap.
The best way to juggle a multitude of Social Security tasks online is by creating a secure, personal my Social Security account. Creating your own account is easy, and, once you do, you can complete a number of tasks. Check it out at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount. With a my Social Security account you can securely conduct business in the privacy of your own home.
Your account gives you immediate access to your personal Social Security information. During your working years, you can use my Social Security to view your Social Security Statement, to check your earnings record, and see estimates of the future retirement, disability, and survivor benefits you and your family may receive.
Are you already receiving benefits? You can use your online account to immediately get your proof of benefits letter, change your address or phone number in your records, start or change your direct deposit, check your benefit and payment information, get a replacement Medicare card, or get a replacement SSA-1099 or SSA-1042S for the tax season.
From getting the facts on how to get a replacement Social Security card to how to apply online for disability benefits, the place to go for juggling all of the services and information offered by Social Security is www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.
