Tip: Accessing Your Social Security Statement

SS Tip: StatementOn May 1, 2012, the Social Security Administration (SSA) unveiled a new addition to its popular suite of electronic services at www.socialsecurity.gov/mystatement, which allows people to access their Social Security earnings and benefit information securely and conveniently.
To access your online Social Security Statement, you must be at least 18 years old, have a Social Security number, have a valid email address, and have a U.S. mailing address. To learn more or to create your own account, please go to www.socialsecurity.gov/mystatement.
The social security website is a valuable source of information about Social Security disability claims or your particular account information.  Mr. Hankus encourages you to take advantage of this valuable resource.  The home page for the Social Security administration website is at www.SSA.gov.
If you are receiving benefits, your mySSA account will allow you to:
  • Print a benefits verification letter
  • Check earnings records
  • Obtain a history of the dates and amounts of benefit payments
  • Change addresses and phone numbers
  • Start direct deposit or change the account into which benefits are deposited
  • Track the status of requests for reconsideration or waivers if they are contesting an alleged overpayment or other SSA action
