  1. If I receive SSI and SSD disability, Am I eligible to file taxes? I’m curious if I can claim taxes? Please, let me know? I appreciate it. Thank you, Karla Linnell

    • Hi Karla, some people have to pay federal income taxes on their Social Security benefits. This usually happens only if you have other substantial income (such as wages, self-employment, interest, dividends and other taxable income that must be reported on your tax return) in addition to your benefits.
      For additional tax questions, you will need to contact the IRS. Their toll-free number is 1-800-829-1040. We hope this helps.

    • If you have stated your income/resources correctly and are eligible for SSI you do not need to file taxes unless you can claim a refund/child credit etc. Contact the IRS for more details.

    • You can speak to a Social Security representative for help with a my Social Security account between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 12:00 midnight Eastern Time, Monday through Friday.

  8. I have “My Social Security” i attempted to use it to get SSA1099 and was denied access. For some unknown reason, certainly not anything I did. I am 88 yrs old, am disabled. To go to the local SS Office is a very difficult chore for me as I need a walker, and have to arrange for someone to take the day off to transport me. Why is My Social Security account frozen.??????

  9. I have paid Social Security since I was 17 (in The USAF) Have had an account most of the time since they were available. Paid until Retirement.
    But I have forgotten my OLD EMAIL ADDRESS. Without it, I cannot reinstate and use my Social Security.
    I have tried many times to log on and reinstate it, but am stopped by the system when I am unable to provide the OLD email address. Is there a solution short of visiting a Social Security Field Office?

    • Thank you for contacting us, Bobby. If you are having difficulties with your personal my Social Security account, and before you go to your local Social Security office, please call our “Help Desk“.
      Call 1-800-772-1213 for assistance. After you hear “Briefly tell me why you are calling,” say “Help Desk” for help with a my Social Security account. We hope this helps!

  10. If I understand the email I received today, I appears that you think I have visited this site earlier today…I have not! And, that concerns me because someone tried to hack one of my credit card accounts this past week. If you received a visit to my account today (02/01/2018) I would appreciate a contact verifying the activity.

  11. As mentioned before, mail is EXTREMELY slow going to Sihanoukville. Typically I receive the questionnaire in late February, so kindly cut me some slack since it WILL be rather late by the time you receive it.

    Is it possible to fill out the form online? If a signature is required can you send me the form online or by email and I’ll see if I can print it out and perhaps fax it to you.

    Cambodia can be rather primitive in terms of technology.

    Thank you,

    • Hello Raul, we prefer a government issued document with your picture, as proof of identity to replace your Social Security card.
      If you do not have one or you cannot get one within a reasonable amount of time, we may be able to use other documents such as:
      •Employee identification card;
      •School identification card;
      •Health insurance card; or
      •U.S. military identification card.
      Any document you submit, must be an original or certified copy, current (not expired) and show your name, and other identifying information (date of birth or age).
      Also, realize that you may not need a replacement card. You will rarely need to show it. Knowing your Social Security number is what is important.

  34. I tried to apply on line for my SS replacement card.
    two of the questions were about me opening a credit card in 2008, I don’t remember what card I would have opened 10 years ago. I have had many credit cards over the years.
    Also, for a car loan, I have owned a number of automobiles and have had loans from different companies, I did not recognize the names you listed so I had to choose none of the above that I recognize.
    Call me at thenumber listed.
    I just want to know what information I need to bring with me when I go into the local Madison Wisconsin SS Office to apply for a replacement card ?

    Could someone guide me in this respect? I have no desire to visit the nearest SS office. Could this be done online or via US Mail services?

    Thanks for your response. Please send me an email, which would be appreciated.

  48. – Please make your information shorter and give access for feedback make an index of important articles.
    – I would like to know why do we pay tax on money that we already paid taxes.
    – Why people who works part time after retirement pays social security and medicare but does not get anything back.

    • Thank you for your comment, Bernardo. Current law requires everyone working in covered employment or self-employment, regardless of age or eligibility for benefits, to pay Social Security and Medicare taxes.
      Generally, if you continue to work while receiving retirement benefits, your monthly benefit amount may increase. Each year, we review the records for all working Social Security recipients to see if additional earnings may increase monthly benefits.
      For further income tax questions, you will need to contact the IRS. Their toll-free number is 1-800-829-1040.

  49. I received from the department of labor a social security number ;the card of social security is missed please send information regarding my case …thank you ;

  50. Hello. I receive SSI disability, and my minor daughter receives monthly benefits from this as well. I received my SSA-1099, last month. Should I receive a separate one for the benefits paid out on my daughters behalf??

    Secondly, can I create an online account for my minor daughter, for the purposes of viewing monthly benefits, if I wanted to change the account, to her own savings account, etc.?? Or is there a way of accessing her information, from my SSA online account, since she is a minor dependent beneficiary of my disability benefits??

    Thank you!!

    • Hello Nicole, you can only create a my Social Security account using your own personal information and for your own exclusive use. Also, one of the requirements to create an account is that the individual creating an account has to be at least 18 years of age.
      SSA’s role is to provide a benefit statement each year to each beneficiary who may be subject to Federal income taxes on his or her Social Security benefits. Please call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213 and ask one of our agents to assist you in regards to your daughter’s benefits and Form SSA-1099. Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Or contact your local Social Security office. Thanks!

  53. My father died in 2017. Prior thereto, he received SS benefits. As his executor, I need to file his taxes but haven’t received a statement of the benefits paid to him. What should I do?

    • We’re sorry to hear about the loss of your father, Linda. In certain cases, we may disclose SSA-1099 information from the record of a deceased person, only to a survivor of the deceased and only if we are able to establish the relationship of the survivor to the deceased based on SSA records. You will need to go into the local Social Security office with proper identification and supporting documents to make a request for a replacement SSA-1099. We hope this information helps.

  54. Looked all over your site to find how to request replacement 2018 tax form – by MAIL. NOT online. Where is that info???

  55. I am trying to get a ssa 1099 form for my sister who passed away in August to do her taxes. How do I get one since I dont have her account number and password.

    • We’re sorry to hear about the loss of your sister, Virginia. You must submit a formal request in writing to the local Social Security office.

  56. I constantly run into problems using this site, and others related to it. Cannot do this or that…”system is not available at this time…” etc.

    I’ve been paying into, and subsequently collecting SS benefits for years and today your system says it does not recognize me, my wife, and neither of us can get any further than SSA “does not recognize you…”.

    Guess I’ll just call a local office and spend all day waiting for someone to answer the phone.

  57. I turned 66 in 2017 and began drawing my Social Security also. The letter from Social Security states that the income limit for me was 44,800.00. I worked full time part of 2017. If I am allowed to work and make up to $44,800. and I only make $29,869.00 and received $12056.00 in SS, Why am I being made to pay tax on half of my SS? It was my understanding from talking to the SS office, that as long as I did not go over the limit, I would not have to pay taxes on my SS. Thanks for your help.

    • Hello Mr. Edwards. Our “work provisions” allowed you to work and make $44,880 the year you attained your full retirement age without affecting your Social Security benefits. In the other hand, current law requires some people to pay federal income taxes on their Social Security benefits. This usually happens if you have other substantial income (such as wages, self-employment, interest, dividends and other taxable income that must be reported on your tax return) in addition to your Social Security benefits.
      See our Benefits Planner: Income Taxes And Your Social Security Benefits for more information.
      For further income tax questions, you will need to contact the IRS. Their toll-free number is 1-800-829-1040. Thanks!

  83. My mom completed a form to get a replacement SSA 1099 since February 2018 and now it is April 10, 2018 and still not received a replacement. I also had her complete it with a new address, and the form says it doesn’t update change of address. There is no change of address form and her password doesn’t work anymore and my mom doesn’t know how to use a computer.
    It is a nightmare to get anything done through SSA.
    All we need is a replacement 1099 for 2017 and it hasn’t been sent to her. I was told to go down to the local office and have her address updated. I went down there and was told that she would have to physically come in. My mom is over 90 years old and physically can’t walk as she is now disabled and living in assisted living. I’ve spent at least an hour and half on the phone on hold while nothing can be done as said I should go down to the local office. I did that but the supervisor there said I should wait to receive it by mail, I tried to explain that she moved and obviously the old address won’t accept any of her mail as she is no longer there. I can’t believe now stupid that agency is and of course the IRS isn’t going to wait even with an extension filed by me on her behalf. I am so upset that a change of address couldn’t be done. I asked to speak to a supervisor and was told that one would call back. I called at 12 noon and got off the phone at 1:10 pm and haven’t received any call back or a new password to reset so I can retrieve her 1099 on line.
    I am going to file the extension with the IRS, and pay the estimated taxes for my mom. I had a bad feeling that this department is that bad and can’t get anything done properly for a senior. I just want to make sure we get this 1099 as required by the IRS, in order to file her income tax for 2017. It doesn’t look like it can be done on time. Eight weeks of waiting since February 2018 is a very long time to wait and I’m sure they sent it to the old address, although there was a updated address on the form which is probably the wrong form. It was the one that was on their website, to request it.
    I left messages before and never received an obvious solution. I am so disappointed and upset with them, SSA is such an non responsible government agency. They are messing with seniors tax information and don’t care either. No return call either today.

  84. I have spent an hour wading thru this disaster w/ NO RESULTS!!!!!!

You make the statement “The forms SSA-1099 and SSA-1042S are not available for people who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI).”, but you don’t explain why, and where that means there is another form that applies, or is SSI payments are exempt from taxes? Not helpful to make statements that are not explanied!

    • Hi, Merle. We appreciate you using our blog to communicate with us! At this time you must have a U. S. mailing address to create or to access your online account. The “my Social Security” authentication system requires address verification as one of the essential criteria for issuing an account.

Our Office of International Operations (OIO) home page provides more information to assist our customers living abroad. We hope this information helps!

  105. My Name is Annelle Barrow and I am acting on behalf of my mother Eileen Hartshorn. She lives in an elderly appt complex and has to re apply every year to live there. One of the forms she has to show is her social security benefit statement. She is 90 years old and has misplaced her 2018 SSA 1099 form. She does not have an email and I hesitate to sign her up o with a “my social security” account. I have attempted to contact the nearest SS office but am unable to get a response and she will need this form soon. How can I get a replacement SSA 1099 for 2018?

    • Hello Annelle. Please keep in mind that you can only create a my Social Security account using your own personal information and for your own exclusive use. You cannot create or use an account on behalf of another person, even if you have that person’s written permission.
      The other two ways that your mother can request a replacement form SSA-1099 is by:
      •Calling us at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778), Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; or
      •Contacting the local Social Security office.
      Based on the information you’re providing, you should consider applying for a Representative Payee status for your mother. Please note that having a power of attorney, or having a joint bank account with the beneficiary, is not the same as being a payee. These arrangements do not give you legal authority to negotiate and manage payments for someone receiving Social Security or SSI payments.
      You must apply for and be appointed as a representative payee by SSA. A face-to-face interview is required for you to apply. If approved to serve as your mother’s representative payee, it will make it easier for you in the future, to access her record and update her information.

  108. HELLO: I’M HAVING SOME ISSUES WITH SSA

    WE WERE “PAID” IN 2016 TAX YEAR.THE I.R.S.
    BELIEVES WE GOT THAT MONEY AND SENT US
    A LETTER OF PROPOSED TAXES WE OWE THEM
    OF AROUND $11,000.00. WE HAVE BEEN TO SSA AND THEY TELL US THE I.R.S. MIS-UNDERSTOOD

  109. Why does your website behave like it was made in the 90’s. Pages don’t load. USA is number one, what a joke. They still make you go down to the social security office and wait in line for hours. We can send a man to the moon and build billion dollar subs to rot in the middle of the polluted pacific, but they cant make a working website.

  110. My Dad lost his Soc Security Card and needs a replacement. His license has expired can he still use it for identification

    • Hi Helen, we prefer a current (not expired) government issued document with a picture, as proof of identity for a replacement Social Security card. If your father does not have one or cannot get one within a reasonable amount of time, we may be able to use other documents such as:

      •Employee identification card;
      •School identification card;
      •Health insurance card; or
      •U.S. military identification card.

      All submitted documents must be original or certified copy, cannot be expired and must show the person’s name along with other identifying information (date of birth or age).

      Also, realize that your father may not need a replacement card. Individuals rarely need to show it. Knowing the Social Security number is what is important.

      To see if your father is eligible to apply for a replacement Social Security card online or to learn more on the process and what documents are needed to get a card, please visit our “Social Security Number and Card” web page.

  111. I need to find how cards
    to get my social security card replaced and my medicare card from my widow benefits lost all my c

    • Hi Marguerite, thank you for your question. First, realize you may not need a replacement card. You will rarely need to show it. Knowing your Social Security number is what is important. However, if you must get a replacement card, you may be able to apply online. If you do not qualify to apply online, then you can apply by mail or visit your local office with required documentation. All documents must be either originals or certified copies. To learn more on how to get a replacement card and see if you can apply online, please visit our “Social Security Number and Card” web page.

      Click here to see how you can get a replacement Medicare card. If you can’t or prefer not to use the online service, call us at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. or contact your local Social Security office.

  112. We need a replacement 1099 for my wife’s father who cannot go online. This is so we may file his 2017 IRS taxes. What to do?

    • If unable to request a replacement SSA-1099 online, he will need to either call us at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778), Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. or contact his local Social Security office.

      Because of privacy and security concerns, you will not be able to conduct Social Security business on behalf of someone else unless you are their representative payee. Having a power of attorney, being an authorized representative, or having a joint bank account does not authorize you to access information on their Social Security record. If your wife’s father does not have a representative payee and he is not capable of managing and directing his Social Security benefits, someone should consider applying to be his payee. To learn more about becoming a representative payee, you can read our publication, “A Guide for Representative Payees” or visit our Representative Payee webpage. You can also call us at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) to request an appointment.

  122. I was wondering if I sent you all my information ( birth certificate, driver’s license and the applacation) could I get a new social security çard?

  123. This did not help me learn what to do to get the needed forms to file a tax return for a deceased parent. I am still baffled.

    • We’re sorry to hear about your loss, Joseph. The benefit statement is mailed to the last address in our records and is intended for the spouse or executor of the deceased. If you do not have access to the mail at that address, the executor will need to go into the local field office with proof of death and proof of executorship. An SSA-1099 can also be given to someone receiving benefits on the deceased beneficiary’s record such as a spouse, parent, or child of the deceased. If you need more information, call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. and ask a representative for assistance.

    • Hi Russ. In January 2019, we will send the 2018 SSA-1099 (Social Security Benefit Statement), showing the amount of benefits received in the prior calendar year.
