Enjoying the independence that we have as Americans is a privilege we’ve earned, together. It took the sacrifice of millions of entrepreneurs and Service men and women, nurses and caregivers. You’ve done your job in making this nation what it is today: proud, strong, and secure. For more than 80 years, Social Security has been doing the same. We’re with you through life’s journey, from birth to retirement and beyond. And one of the best tools we provide every American is my Social Security, our secure online resource customized for you.
