    What form do I need to make out if my SS statement is missing data? I am asking for my husband.

      Hello Susan. If your husband needs to make corrections to his earnings record, he will need to go into the local Social Security office. He will need to provide proper ID and evidence of his missing earnings (W-2s, pay stubs, etc.).
      To make an appointment or to discuss specifics about his case, he can call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778). Representatives are available Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Generally, you’ll have a shorter wait time if you call later in the week.
      For any income tax related questions, he will need to contact the IRS. Their toll-free number is 1-800-829-1040. We hope this information helps!
