Social Security offers online access to individual account records


Social Security now provides online access to account holder’s information. The link to set up and account and use it is here

You can’t use the spelling of your last name anywhere in the user name.  That will make it harder to remember even the user name.

The site also offers 2-step verification by cell phone, the same way Google does.

The main information that I found available on line was my complete (in backwards chronological order) earnings history, back to the time I started working. 

This facility may be of greatest use to recent (or "early") beneficiaries
