The Social Security website provides many useful online resources for those who are retired or about to retire.
Their website features a wealth of information for anyone wanting information on Social Security topics. Jack Myers, with Social Security, says the site is geared toward assisting every type of person including non-English speakers. The search engines also allow any Social Security issue to be found quickly.
Using different keywords will also help to narrow down a Social Security topic being searched for. Myers notes those who still want a hard copy of particular information can obtain forms at their local Social Security Office.
The Social Security website can also help to alleviate retirement anxiety. According to Myers, creating a My Social Security account will allow a beneficiary to look up all of the personal information including earnings and statements.
Social Security's website can be found at www.socialsecurity.gov. To start a My Social Security account, visit www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.
