Social Security Administration Stops Mailing Paper Statements Again

Aug 22, 2014 | WC & Other Laws

SSA has suspended mailing out their Social Security earnings and benefits statements effective October 1 due to their very tight budget. The Social Security statements showed a person’s earnings covered by Social Security and estimates of the person’s potential retirement and disability benefits. SSA had previously suspended mailing out the paper Social Security statements as of April 2011 to save money. In February of this year, SSA had begun mailing the Social Security statements to people over 60 years old and to people in the year of their 25th birthday.

Earlier this year, SSA started offering an online version of the Social Security statement. It is a good idea to get a copy of your Social Security statement yearly to make sure your earnings are accurate. It is much easier to make corrections to your earnings statement now than in 10 years.
