my Social Security: Have you created your online account?

my Social Security is a website managed by the Social Security Administration and allows users to create personal accounts, update address and contact information, track earnings, estimate future benefits and manage current benefits. Users may even order replacement medicare cards, order replacement SSA-1099 forms and state/change direct deposit. To create an account, you must be 18 or over, have a valid email address and hold a US mailing address. However, you may not create an account for another person, even with that person’s written permission. A major benefit to creating an online account is to avoid waiting in long lines to have an agent of the SSA assist you. Determining your potential social security benefits is an important step in planning for retirement. Confirming your past earnings is also necessary to ensure you receive all of your eligible benefits.
