Procedure for Correcting Earnings Record
1420.1 What is the process for correcting earnings records, and when should it be done?
To correct your Social Security Earnings record, get in touch with the nearest Social Security office or call SSA's toll free number 1-800-772-1213. Do this when your earnings statement shows that earnings have not been correctly reported or credited. It will be helpful when you contact SSA to have any information such as forms W-2, paystubs, etc. available.
1420.2 How does the SSA assist employees with correcting their record?
We do several things to help correct your record. We check to see if any missing reports of earnings can be found. If we can not find the records, we write your employer to get a statement of your earnings.
