Social Security Benefits – National my Social Security Week

Help Social Security Celebrate!

July 19th through 25th marks the celebration of Social Security’s second National my Social Security Week. If you have a Social Security Benefits online account, you are aware of what a great financial planning and benefit management tool it is! Social Security hopes that you take this opportunity to spread the word to your colleagues, friends and family, about the benefits of signing up for a my Social Security account at Social Security. You should know – that with your account, you can verify your earnings, see your eligibility for Social Security Disability benefits and get estimates of your potential Disability, Survivors and Retirement monthly benefit amounts – all to help you make important financial decisions. If you already receive benefits, you can get a benefit verification letter, check benefit and payment information, change your address or direct deposit information, and get a replacement Medicare card or SSA-1099 for tax season.

A my Social Security account is convenient, secure, and FREE!

It’s never too early or too late to plan for the future – nobody plans to fail, they just fail to plan!
