  Can anyone view my account information on the Internet?

NO. The Internet service can only be accessed by the individual of record who has successfully registered their own password with SSA. The "Check Your Social Security Benefits" internet query service has Internet security benefits (128 bit encryption) built into it. Encryption means that information relating to you and your account is scrambled and locked during electronic transfer. For more information on the subject, you can visit:
