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 found your web page where I could request the 1099 in PDF form did not work. I clicked the link, and didn’t get any response. https://secure.ssa.gov/my1099/downloadPDF.action
    I lost my 1099, and have an appointment to do taxes today!

    My local SS office does not respond. I was requested to mail trust documents to get the 1099 for my uncle, I am trustee.
    This was over 2 weeks ago and no one will call back or respond.
    I cannot close his trust without filing taxes and must have the 1099.
    Tried going to the office and they won’t address folks standing outside the door.
    Lots of people need help. Thanks
