Why don’t I get a Social Security Statement anymore

Social Security stopped mailing out statements as a cost-saving method.  Your statement is available onl;in – go to socialsecurity.gov, create a user account, and then you can view your statement.

WHATS INCLUDED IN THE STATEMENT- It will show you your estimated benefits at your normal retirement age, early retirement, and if you wait until age 70.  It also shows the benefits your spouse would receive if you passed away.

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT-  You can only correct the last 3 yeasrs of records.  Therefore you need to look at last every two years to make sure you are being fully credited for your reported income.
