Social Security Statements
The Social Security Administration mails an annual Social Security Statement to workers who are age 25 or older, and are not currently receiving a Social Security benefit. The Statement should be in your mailbox about 3 months before your birthday. The Social Security Statement shows your earnings records, upon which Social Security benefits are based. It also estimates the benefits you and your family can expect to receive when you become eligible. Since the statement provides an estimate of your Social Security retirement, disability and survivors benefits, it can be a valuable tool to help you plan your financial future. Reviewing the posted earnings on your statement is another way you can be alerted to possible fraudulent use of your Social Security number.
You may access your Social Security Statement online any time at http://www.ssa.gov/mystatement/.
