You are now able to access your social security information with a few clicks of your mouse. The Social Security Administration (SSA) website has added a log in area called “My Social Security”, which allows you to see your personal social security information.
Previously, this information was only available via the statements mailed out by the SSA. Now, by creating an account and verifying your identity with a few questions from your credit report, you can access information such as estimates of future retirement benefits, lifetime earnings to date, and the total Social Security and Medicare taxes you’ve paid.
This site also guides you on what to do if you find any of this information to be incorrect, and if you qualify to begin receiving benefits. You can also from here navigate to file an application to begin receiving disability and retirement payments.
It is recommended that you review this information frequently to be sure your social security amounts are being reported correctly on your behalf. To access your account today, go to https://www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount/
