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.

    Will my social security amount change if I move to another state?

    • Sue

      Hi, Illona. Thanks for reading our blog and for your question. If you receive a federal administered benefit such as Social Security retirement, spouse’s, disability, or survivors benefits, your benefit amount will not change if you move to another state. However, if you receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI), your benefit amount might change as some states supplement the federal benefit rate with an additional amount. If you receive Social Security, be sure to change your address using your my Social Security account. If you cannot change your address online, call 1-800-772-1213 or your local office. You’ll find the phone number with the Office Locator. We hope this is helpful.

  9. Irene S.

    I would like to increase the tax I pay monthly on my Social Security check. How do I do that>>>

    • Vonda

      Thank you for your question, Irene. To change withholding, you can download the form or call the IRS toll-free at 1-800-829-3676 and ask for Form W-4V. When you complete the form, you can choose to have 7, 10, 12, or 22 percent of your monthly benefit withheld for taxes. Mail the completed, signed form to your local Social Security office. Use our Social Security Office Locator to obtain their mailing address.

      Check out our Withholding Income Tax From Your Social Security Benefits web page for more information. We hope this is helpful!

    I will be 75 in Dec 2020 and would like to sell a rental property. Will this effect my SS
    thanks

    • Vonda V.

      Hi Barbara, thank you for your question. Sale of property does not affect or reduce Social Security retirement and disability benefits. However, if you’re receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI), the additional income could affect your SSI benefits and must be reported.

      In addition, to determine if you’ll pay higher Medicare premiums, Social Security uses the most recent federal tax return the IRS provides to us. If you must pay higher premiums, we use a sliding scale to make the adjustments, based on your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI). Your MAGI is your total adjusted gross income and tax-exempt interest income.
