  Can I get a password?

If you get Social Security benefits, you can get a password.

The easiest way to do this is online, by following these three steps:

1. Apply for a temporary Password Request Code (PRC).

2. Wait at least 15 days for your PRC letter to come in the mail.

3. Follow the directions on the Password Services page to create your permanent password.

You can also call us at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) or visit your local Social Security office.
