Social Security Statement Available Online
Although mailing of annual statements was discontinued due to government budget cuts, the Social Security Statement is now available online at www.socialsecurity.gov/mystatement.
“Our new online Social Security Statement is simple, easy-to-use, and provides people with estimates they can use to plan for their retirement,” said Michael J. Astrue, Commissioner of Social Security. “The online Statement also provides estimates for disability and survivors benefits, making the Statement an important financial planning tool. People should get in the habit of checking their online Statement each year, around their birthday, for example.”
