SSS.gov and Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

Two-factor authentication (2FA) generally combines a cell phone with a username and password to increase the security associated with a login. You need both the username/password AND the cell phone (to receive texts) to log into a system.

In 2016 the Social Security Administration first required 2FA, and then dropped this requirement.

The use of 2FA when signing into ssa.gov is still under study, but not currently required.
