How Do I Create An Account?

To create a my Social Security account, you must provide some personal information about yourself. You also must give us answers to some questions that only you are likely to know.

Next, you create a username and password that you will use to access your online account. This process protects you and keeps your personal Social Security information private.

You can only create a my Social Security account using your own personal information and for your own exclusive use.  You cannot create or use an account on behalf of another person, even if you have that person’s written permission. You can never share the use of your account with anyone else under any circumstances. Unauthorized use of this service is a misrepresentation of your identity to the federal government and could subject you to criminal or civil penalties, or both.
