How to View Your Social Security Statement Online

Did you know that in 2011, the Social Security Administration (SSA) stopped sending paper statements in order to cut costs? In order to view your statement, you must now access it online. Below are instructions on how to retrieve your Social Security statement.

  1. Go to http://www.ssa.gov/mystatement/

  2. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Create Account." You will have to answer a number of security questions to verify your identity.

  3. View your statement.

Why is it important to view your information periodically? It will allow you time to correct any errors, view your projected benefits, and review your credits and salary history. Regardless of your age, planning for your financial future by knowing what you will (or will not) receive in Social Security is extremely important.
