Social Security (Earnings) Statement
You can receive an electronic (PDF) copy of your "Social Security Statement" at http://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/.

Your Social Security Statement provides :
- Estimates of your retirement, disability, and survivors benefits;
- Your earnings record; and
- The estimated Social Security and Medicare taxes you’ve paid.
It's recommended you check your Social Security Statement annually. When checking, ensure that the SSA properly recorded your wages for last year.
Since retirement and disability benefits increase with wages, you want to ensure your wages are tracked correctly. Also, to be eligible for benefits, you must have enough years of work according to SSA records.
