Be sure to sign up for your personalized my Social Security account. You can verify your earnings and get estimates of your future benefits. If you already receive benefits, you can get an instant benefit verification letter, check your benefit and payment information, change your address or direct deposit information, request a replacement Medicare card, or get an instant replacement SSA-1099 for tax season.
my Social Security account is convenient, secure, and FREE!
Since my Social Security became available in May 2012, almost 26 million people have created an account. We have always offered multifactor authentication, but only for customers who opted for extra security. For your protection, we now offer the option of multifactor authentication for all my Social Security users. To register and sign in, you will need to enter a security code that we will send to your cell phone. Your cell phone provider’s text message and data rates may apply.
