While you’re vacation, Social Security is available in the same way - easily accessible when you’re away from your home or office.
When you’re going on vacation and want to be sure your Social Security benefits arrive, use my Social Security. A my Social Security account is important whether you receive benefits from Social Security or not. You can:
- Request a replacement Social Security or Medicare card if you meet certain requirements;
- Check the status of your application or appeal;
- Get your Social Security statement; or
- Get a benefit verification letter stating that:
You receive retirement, disability, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or Medicare benefits; or
You never received Social Security benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Medicare; or
You received benefits in the past, but do not currently receive them; or
You applied for benefits but haven’t received an answer yet.
