A new online version of the Social Security Statement is now available. The online Statement provides eligible workers with access to their Social Security earnings and benefit information. It provides estimates people can use to plan for retirement, and also provides estimates for disability and survivors benefits. The Social Security Administration (SSA) encourages everyone to check the Statement once a year. To get a personalized Statement, people age 18 and older must be able to provide, through a secure system, information about themselves that matches information already on file with Social Security. SSA anticipates some members of the public will not be able to be verified through this process. In instances where this occurs, people will have the option to request a paper Social Security Statement be mailed to them. To learn more, visit www.socialsecurity.gov/mystatement.
