 So about a year ago I created an online account for Social Security so I could look up the information I needed at tax time. The login and password that I recorded no longer works. My "security questions" failed to get me in. Fortunately I was able to reset my password by having a temp password emailed.

When I logged in to create the new password I discovered the problem. THE F***NG PASSWORD EXPIRES AFTER SIX MONTHS. Remember, this is an account that I can see no reason to access more often than once per year. (I'm guessing that most people don't sign in to their online Social Security account very often). Why would they? So this means I'll have to go through the damn password recovery dance every year. 

And does it make my account safer?  Of course not. Anybody who can get access to my main email account can break into it, which is not exactly military-level secure.

I haven't had to deal with my Social Security account much - yet. Not looking forward to this.
