WARNING do not open the email or click on link to “check your social security account.” It’s a scam. If you look closely, the link contains underscores, which would never happen with a government site not to mention the real site address is http://www.ssa.gov. I recommend you delete the email and share this warning with friends, especially those that are not on social media and/or are easily scammed. Call your parents to let them know.
I personally received this email today. I know that the IRS issues your social security account summary by mail NOT email.
You are welcome. – BMT
