A Social Security statement containing both an estimate of benefits and a record of earnings is available online and by mail. To obtain the statement online create a Social Security account at www.ssa.gov/myaccount/. This account permits a person to manage personal information such as address change, etc. In order to receive the statement by mail, fill out form SSA-7004 (Request for Social Security Statement) which is available at www.ssa.gov or by calling the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213. A statement of total wages credited to the earnings record and an estimate of future Social Security retirement benefits will then be mailed to you.
