The Social Security Administration is hosting its first National my Social Security Week from August 17-23, 2014!
During that week, they will host numerous events across the country and on social media to raise awareness about the benefits of having a mySocial Security account.
Why should you open a free mySocial Security account?
Individuals can use their mySocial Security account to access their Social Security Statement to check their earnings and get estimates of future retirement, disability, and survivor benefits they or their families may receive. If individuals already receive Social Security benefits, they can get benefit verification letters, change their address and phone number, and start or change their direct deposit information.
