Hello @AARPTeri 

 

First, thanks for your quick reply to my initial post. 

 

Next, these links are now bringing up the Social Security tool.  I don't know if they are "fixed" or not?  It is strange that the Spanish version indicated that I had already used the tool this month (showing a "What's This" badge) before I had tried either English or Spanish version of the tool.  Anyway, I received 300 points from the English version link (after completing it twice.)  I always keep my rewards page open to make sure I get points for activities.

@AARPTeri  One of the 'non-working' tools is still on the earn page.  It is the third from the bottom in the second column (monthly) under MONEY.  Just thought you would like to know.

andrewtoo, so you know, I just started getting my social security retirement benefits. I filed online but ended up having to go to their local office to "verify my identity (Jan 2019).

 

An appointment was 3 weeks out (no electronic way) so I waited in line 2+ hours; done.

 

Consider going to local office and waiting in line...

 

Based on my experience, nothing can be done electronically via .gov (I used to check in with the benefits tool and that doesn't work now for me).

@andrewtoo   You beat me to this - we have two tools that are currently not working and have been removed from the earn page until they have been corrected.

"Calculator: Social Security Benefits *" Monthly 300 pt Tool not working for me....

@AARPTeri

 

Hello guys,

 

Anyone having trouble with this tool?

 

I'm having a strange problem with this monthly tool.  It appears twice (in English) on the Earn Points page.  Both tools have always been identical, so I have only gotten 300 points total, even if I took them both.  Both are showing me a 300 point Rewards for Good Badge, yet, every time I have opened one of the tools the page only displays the heading, badge, and introductory paragraph about the tool.  The actual tool does not load to complete the exercise.  The tool appears on the Earn Points page as:

 

Work & Retirement Section: 

Calculator: Social Security Benefits

 

Money:

Calculator: Social Security Benefits *

 

Both are also the same URL, but I wanted to be clear that I am having with them both: No tool loads, R4G badge shows 300 points available to earn.

 

I was hoping it was a short term issue and would resolve itself, but, it is the 4th of the month and the tool is still not working for me.

 

Thanks!
