At a Legislative Conference at the White House on June 26, 2014, Stacy Rogers, Senior Adviser to the Acting Commissioner, SSA, encouraged Americans to gain control of their Social Security Benefits. She advised that Statements are no longer being mailed to individuals due to budgetary constraints.
Ms. Rogers encouraged individuals to set up their own Social Security account to get their social security statements. Waiting until retirement is far too late to contest records.
So be wise and visit http://www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount and create a ‘My Social Security’ account to get your Social Security Statement. Your statement provides:
* Estimates of your retirement, disability and survivors benefits
*Your earnings record
*The estimated social security and medicare taxes that you have paid.
So don’t wait! Go ahead and gain control of your Social Security benefits!
