My Social Security for IDIB

All first party filers for benefits should be required to register for my Social Security to apply. An alternate portal could be provided for 3rd parties filing for others. The my Social Security account should also be used to check the status of claims and check for any correspondence sent to the claimant. This eliminates the need for multiple links for SSA business (one to file, one to check the status and then a my Social Security link) Once claimants register, they should be able to opt for online notices only if already entitled to benefits. They could print/reprint notices as they need to. This could save the Agency in postage costs.
