Social Security is reaching out to the public about our online services and the benefits of creating your own account. We will also answer general questions regarding benefits we offer such as retirement, survivors and disability benefits.

Take one simple step right now to make the most of your participation in the upcoming Social Security meeting; register today for your personal My Social Security account at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.

My Social Security is the safest, easiest and fastest way to access your annual Social Security Statement, a free, personalized financial planning tool that shows how much you’ve earned over the years and what you can expect to receive from Social Security when you retire. Your Statement is available to you online through your My Social Security account at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount. 

For most people, registering for your personal My Social Security account takes only a few minutes, after which you will have immediate access to your annual Social Security Statement. You register only once and then can log in to view your Statement using your personally selected User Name and password. Just follow the easy instructions in our fact sheet, How to Create an Online Account. 

Review your Social Security Statement at least once a year to make sure that your name, date of birth and the last four digits of your Social Security Number are correct and that your earnings are accurately recorded. Since your monthly Social Security retirement benefit will be based on your highest 35 years of work, your Statement should show your full work history.

If you are married, make sure your spouse registers for his or her My Social Security account, too. 

Remember:

1. Go to www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount and sign up today for your personal My Social Security account.
2. Review your annual Social Security Statement. (If you’re married, make sure that your spouse registers for his or her My Social Security account, too.)
3. Download or print your Statement so that you have it with you during the meeting. 


The Social Security Administration has been in existence providing help to families, retirees, survivors and disabled people for over 80 years.
