April is National Social Security Month.
This year, during National Social Security Month, there will be a focus on the online services Social Security provides that help put people in control — with secure access to information anytime, anywhere.
National Social Security Month is a time to create a mySocial Security account at ssa.gov/mysocialsecurity, and learn how to:
Request a replacement Social Security card
Set up or change direct deposit
Get a proof of income letter
Change your address, if you get benefits
Check the status of your Social Security application
Get a Social Security 1099 form (SSA-1099)
For more than 80 years, Social Security has helped secure today and tomorrow with information, tools and resources to meet changing needs and lifestyles.
