About Your Online Social Security Account - Daily Courier
Our electronic world is changing, and has been for decades. For many in our younger generation, life without computers, smart phones, tablets, and online services for shopping and banking, not doing almost everything online is unimaginable.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has adapted from the old ways for service (taking your phone calls or doing in-office visits at your local SS office), to offering an ever increasing menu of online services you can do from the comfort of your own home.
