Social Security Now has Online Services Available!
People age 18 and older who are NOT receiving benefits can sign up for a my Social Security account to get a personalized online Social Security statement (rather than having to wait to receive one once a year as was previously done). The online Statement provides eligible workers with secure and convenient access to their Social Security earnings and benefit information and estimates of future benefits they can use to plan for their possible disability and/or retirement. In addition, the portal also includes links to information about other online services, such as applications for retirement, disability and Medicare.
NICE TO KNOW!
Did you know there is a "Medical Alert Restroom Access Required" card you can get?
This card is associated with Ally's Law, a law that has been passed in 12 states so far,
and is for people with illnesses such as Crohn's, IBS, Colitis, etc. The law states that people
with these illnesses cannot be denied access to a restroom, even if the restroom is not for public use, for employees only, etc. Just wanted to spread the word for those of you who might be affected and don't know about this law or this card. Website: www.myIBD.org
