How do you request an extension of time for filing your annual report?

1817. How do you request an extension of time for filing your annual report?

If you believe that you have a valid reason for an extension, file a request with a Social Security office before your annual report is due. The request must be in writing and must:

  1. Clearly identify you (or the beneficiary, if you are filing on his or her behalf) by name and claim number;

  2. Establish the year that your annual report is due;

  3. State the reason you need the extension;

  4. State the amount of additional time you need;

  5. Show the date you are making the request;

  6. Be signed by you (or the person requesting the extension on your behalf); and

  7. If you are making the request on behalf of a beneficiary, show the beneficiary's authorization or include a statement by you giving the basis for your authority.

Note: For reports due on or after April 15, 1997, we consider all adjustments based on posted earnings to be based on a timely filed report. (See Section §1814.) However, beneficiaries requesting an extension of time for filing a self-employment tax return with IRS should also request an extension of time for filing the annual report with us.
