Go green by going paperless

March 18, 2013
By Ramiro Sifuentes , Marshall Independent

Social Security district manager in Marshall

With St. Patrick's Day at its heart, March is a very green month. People celebrating the luck of the Irish wear green clothing, drink green beverages and can even be found enjoying a shamrock milkshake from time to time. I would like to encourage you to go green in another way, too. Being environmentally friendly isn't an elusive pot of gold at the end of some rainbow - it is something everyone can work toward with little steps. Reusing and recycling, planting a tree and using Social Security's online services. When you use Social Security's online services, there's no paper, printing, postage, or travel needed. Here are a few of our most popular online services:

Try out our expanded my Social Security services. It's a one-stop shop to obtain a Social Security Statement for checking your earnings record or estimated future benefits, or (if you already get benefits) for checking your payment amount, changing your address and telephone number in our records, getting a benefit verification letter and starting or changing your direct deposit information.

Retire online! You can complete and submit your retirement application in as little as 15 minutes. www.socialsecurity.gov/retireonline

Apply online for disability benefits. www.socialsecurity.gov/applyfordisability

Apply online for Medicare benefits. www.socialsecurity.gov/medicareonly

Go green with Social Security's online services this month and throughout the year. For a complete list of our online services, visit our website www.socialsecurity.gov.
