#Step2
On the next page you’ll want to read the information carefully before you click “Create An Account.” It discusses the information you’ll need to have handy in order to set up the account. It also makes it clear that you can only set up your own personal account for your exclusive use.

#Step3
In the third step, you need to read and agree to my Social Security Terms of Service. Like step two, you should carefully read this page before clicking in the “I agree” box and then clicking “Next.”

Although you need to understand this information for yourself, here’s a summary of what you are agreeing to.

You will never share you information with anyone or use anyone’s account
You understand that the Social Security Administration uses a credit reporting agency to verify your information when you are opening this account. In order to verify your information, they must make a “soft” inquiry on your credit report. This soft inquiry should not affect your credit score.
Once you open an account, you will no longer receive a paper statement in the mail. Instead, you’ll receive an annual email reminding you to login and check your information.

#Step4
Now it’s time to start verifying your identity. You’ll need to fill in your name, SSN, birthdate, address and phone number. All of this information needs to be an exact match to what’s found on the Social Security records.

At the bottom you’ll see the option to add extra security. By default, “No, maybe later” is selected. If you add this extra layer of security, you’ll receive a code by text message code to your cell phone each time you attempt to log in. Additionally, to add this feature, you’ll have to verify your identity with one of the following:

the last 8 digits from your Visa, MasterCard or Discover Card
information from a W-2 tax form
information from a 1040 Schedule SE (self-employment) tax form

Once you have completed filling in this information, simply click “Next” to proceed to the next screen.

#Step5
In step five, you’ll have to answer some questions that have been generated to help secure your identity. Beware! Not all of these questions are legitimate. They may ask you about a mortgage that you opened in a year where you never had a mortgage. Don’t hesitate to click “none of the above” if you don’t recognize the information.

If you get some of this information incorrect, don’t be surprised if they make you wait 24 hours before trying again. If that happens to you, don’t give up! Come back and try again. Most likely, they’ll ask you a different set of questions in your next attempt.

When you’re satisfied with your answers, click “Next.”

#Step6
You’re almost there! Now you just need to create a username and password.

When creating a username, you cannot use your name or SSN. While it may not be as important as your password, you should still choose a username that is unique and not easily guessed.

When creating your password, it must be a minimum of 8 characters and include:
At least one number
At least one uppercase letter
At least one lowercase letter
At least one symbol

Additionally, it must begin with a letter or number.

Choosing a strong password is really important.
After you choose your username and password, you’ll just need to provide them with a good email address. Remember that your statements will cease and you’ll just get an annual reminder email, so be sure and use an email address that you check regularly.

In the second part of this page you’ll need to select answers to some questions in case you ever need to reset your password.

Once that is finished up, you’re ready to click “Next” and move on to the next page.
