What? My National Social Security Week?
Yes, you read that right.
The Social Security Administration, for the second year now, celebrates July 19th through July 25th as “My National Security Week”.
The SSA (Social Security Administration) encourages you to create an account on www.socialsecurity.gov to view and track your accrued social security benefits.
Once you’ve set up your account, you can verify your past earnings and get estimates of what your future benefits will be. Knowing what level of SSA benefits you can expect (in addition to other retirement income) allows you to plan for your financial future with greater precision.
If you’re already receiving social security benefits, you can get a benefit verification letter, check your benefit and payment information, change your address or direct deposit information. And you can even get a replacement Medicare card or SSA-1099 for the tax season.
So head on over to the Social Security Administration, sign up and know at an instance where you stand.
Happy “my National Social Security Week” (make sure you get out and celebrate)!
