Ways to Create a Personal my Social Security Account

Did you know your clients usually do not need to know their financial history to create a my Social Security account? To create an account or sign in to my Social Security, your clients have the option to access their information with a new or existing Login.gov account or with a new or existing ID.me account.

To create a Login.gov account, your clients will need to provide their:

  • Email address.
  • Password (create one).
  • Second factor authentication method (such as receiving a code via text message to their mobile phone number).

To access my Social Security with a Login.gov account for the first time, your clients will need to provide their:

  • Full name.
  • Social Security Number.
  • Home address.
  • Date of birth.
  • Phone number.

To create an ID.me account, your clients will need to provide their:

  • Email address.
  • Password (create one).
  • Second factor authentication method (such as receiving a code via text to their mobile phone number).
  • Driver’s license, state-issued ID, passport, or passport card.
  • Most recent home address.
  • Birth date.
  • Social Security Number.
  • Selfie.
  • Phone number.

Both options are simple and secure. Please share this infographic, How to create a my Social Security account, with your clients and colleagues.
