man and woman on laptop It’s that time of year again. Preparing for tax season can seem overwhelming. Some forms and paperwork might be difficult to track down. If you misplaced your Benefits Statement or haven’t received it by the end of January, we’ve made it easy to go online to get a replacement with a personal my Social Security account.

An SSA-1099, also called a Benefit Statement, is a tax form Social Security mails each year in January to the more than 60 million people who receive Social Security benefits. It shows the total amount of benefits received from Social Security in the previous year so people know how much Social Security income to report to the IRS on their tax return.

For noncitizens who live outside of the United States and received or repaid Social Security benefits last year, we’ll send form SSA-1042S instead. The forms SSA-1099 and SSA-1042S are not available for people who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

If you currently live in the United States and need a replacement form SSA-1099 or SSA-1042S, we have a way for you to get a replacement quickly and easily. Go online and get a replacement form with a personal my Social Security account.

Every worker in the United States should create a personal my Social Security account. The secure and personalized features of my Social Security are valuable tools to help Americans plan for retirement.

        I have tried several times to obtain my SSA-1099. Waited first time two hours, waited second time 1:55 minutes When the rep came on she said I was locked out of my account. Why??so she said she would reset it if I could answer the questions. I dont remember the answer to the first but did the others. And she said why not you picked it..Maybe concussion I had. Dont know but she hung up. I have tried twice since and no answer except the computer hung up on me loll
        This is absolutely rediculous just for a form..And would not let me put in password. Angry SSCitizen

  9. Karla L.

    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

    • Ray F.

      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.

    • Snarky

      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.
