For seniors, keeping private information safe is of the utmost importance. However, staying safe online can be challenging. Luckily, seniors can take advantage of a number of resources from the Social Security Administration to protect their information.
According to the official Social Security blog, several resources are available specifically so that seniors can protect themselves online. These include:
- A my Social Security account – Open an online account to check for suspicious activity
- The “Guard Your Card” infographic – Learn when you might need to show your Social Security card and when to keep it private
- The Social Security Administration’s Privacy page – Discover how the SSA works to keep your identity safe
You can learn more about these and other resources on the Social Security Administration’s website. Share what you learn with your loved ones as well, as this information can help everyone whether they’re a Social Security recipient or now.
We’re working hard to ensure that seniors can stay safe from scams, fraud, and identity theft. Stay updated with The Seniors Center Blog’s latest updates by following The Seniors Center on Twitter and Facebook!
