On May 1, Social Security unveiled the new addition, which allows people to access their Social Security earnings and benefit information securely and conveniently. Astrue touted the program as a “huge success” and said it meets their commitment to provide Americans with an easy, efficient process to obtain an estimate of their potential Social Security benefits. He recommends everyone check their online statement each year.
The online statement provides estimates for retirement, disability and survivors benefits. It also provides workers as young as 18 a convenient year-round way to determine whether their earnings are accurately posted to their Social Security records, which was not possible when the agency mailed paper statements to only those who are 25 or older.
To access your online 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 create an account, visit www.socialsecurity.gov/mystatement.
