Online Access to Social Security Statement Draws a Million Users

Provides estimates for benefits. It also provides workers as young as 18 a “convenient” way to determine if their earnings are accurately posted

June 29, 2012 – It has been less than two months since the Social Security Administration kicked off the My Social Security program and already a million people have gone online to create and account and view their Social Security statement.

The online Statement provides estimates for retirement, disability and survivors benefits. It also provides workers as young as 18 a “convenient” year-round way to determine whether their earnings are accurately posted to their Social Security records, which was not possible when the agency mailed paper Statements only to those 25 and older, according to SSA.

“The online Social Security Statement is a huge success,” declared Commissioner Michael J. Astrue.

“The online Statement meets our commitment to provide Americans with an easy, efficient process to obtain an estimate of their potential Social Security benefits. I recommend that everyone get in the habit of checking their online Statement each year, around their birthday, for example.”

On May 1, Social Security unveiled this new addition to its popular suite of electronic services at www.socialsecurity.gov/mystatement, which allows people to access their Social Security earnings and benefit information securely and conveniently.

According to the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ASCI), users are giving the online Statement a score of 89 - making it competitive with Social Security’s other top-rated, “best-in-government” online services, such as the Retirement Estimator and online retirement application.

The ASCI tracks trends in customer’s satisfaction and provides valuable benchmarking insights for companies and government agencies.

To access a personal online Statement, a person must be at least 18 years old, have a Social Security number, have a valid email address, and have a U.S. mailing address.

In the major scandal of 2015, Volkswagen cheated you and the world. They rigged diesel emission controls so you, nor regulators, would know how much pollution their cars were adding to our environment.

They were caught and have reserved $7.3 billion to help "make it right" with victims.
