The Social Security Administration has overhauled its website to make it more user-friendly.
According to an announcement posted on the website:
“Many of our most visited sections now use a more user-friendly and task-based approach. In the coming months we will continue to unveil new pages and improvements based on public feedback.”
In a press release, Kilolo Kijakazi, acting commissioner of the Social Security Administration, says the goal of the redesign is to “help people understand what they may qualify for and seamlessly transition them to an application process.”
The hope is that a more user-friendly website will reduce the need for Social Security recipients to call or visit an office in person.
According to the SSA, more than 180 million people use the Social Security website every year.
Among other things, you can use the site to:
- Get a Social Security replacement card
- Check eligibility for benefits
- Apply for Social Security benefits
- Start an application for Supplemental Security Income
