The user can receive a courtesy notification when a new notice or message is available. The user can choose from the following notification preferences.
Both Text message and Email
Do not send me any notifications
We use the email address and phone number (for text messages) from the user's my Social Security account. To use a different email address or phone number, users can update their my Social Security account information.
NOTE: Courtesy notifications do not contain personally identifiable information because they are not secure methods of communication.
NOTE: If a user receives a notification about a notice and is not sure if the notification is valid, advise him or her to log into their my Social
Security account directly from our website at www.socialsecurity.gov instead of accessing the links or files in the notification.
