Social Security Administration

Electronic Letters to Beneficiaries

The Social Security Administration mails out millions of letters to beneficiaries each year. I suggest that the Social Security Administration offer beneficiaries the option to receive their letters electronically via e-mail or be able to receive a notification via email/text message and then be able to check their letters online. The use of e-mail and electronic media is very prevalent today and will continue to grow each year. This will save millions of dollars from postage, paper and envelopes, and will ensure that beneficiaries receive their letters timely.
