80 thoughts on “New Wage Reporting Application

    • First of all, thank you for your service to our country, Henry. If you are receiving benefits from the VA, please keep in mind that the Social Security Act sets out a very strict definition of disability, much different than the requirements for other government programs including veterans benefits. Social Security pays only for total disability. No benefits are payable for partial disability or short-term disability.
      Disability benefits are paid to people who are unable to work because of a medical condition that is expected to last one year or more or to end in death.
      Please call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213 for further assistance. Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

      • If your VA benefit was 100% you would be exempt from property taxes and that may help you out if you own a home and pay property taxes.

  1. Thank you so much for the new wage reporting application. I was having problems with the person at the Social Security Office in West Sacramento, CA., that reported my wages. He made my wages higher and lower than what was on my actual pay-stubs printouts. He and I had run-ins in the past and I reported him. So, he would smile in my face and then does things like this behind my back. I’m so glad that I don’t have to deal with him anymore because I moved. Now this application takes a lot of stress off of me. I was getting ready to call a higher up on him for the miss treatment.

  2.

    • Your English is so poor that I doubt you can correctly enter your password. Stop trying to get into your account, you are wasting your time. Go spray your tomatoes and be useful.

      • Snarky should be deleted and not allowed to speak to another human being like he/she just did! That was such a rude unnecessary comment and you can be sure that I will see to it that you cannot continue to do so much longer!

  3. Could you please let me know if the new wage concern person who doesn’t have a disability as well, cause I am not disable
    Thanks for reply

  4. Have stated a new position, forgot to bring password. will get back to you with in this week. out of state and Gov.

  5. Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter. I’m so glad to hear that you are doing something better disabled people.

  6. Could you please explain how organization rep payees can report their beneficiaries’ wages using the mysocialsecurity wage reporting application? Since Rep Payees are not allowed to set up mysocialsecurity accounts for their individual beneficiaries,this seems contradictory. Can we still use the telephone reporting system?

    • At this time, institutional or organizational representative payees CANNOT use the wage reporting application.
      The system relies on several systems interfaces, and cannot identify payees that are identified by an EIN number. Representatives of institutional/organizational payees cannot use their own SSNs to identify themselves as their SSNs will not be on the benefit record.
      Also, institutional or organizational payees should not assume the identity of a wage earner and report wages. Institutional or organization payees should continue to report wages directly to the field office.
      We thank you for your support and understanding.

  7. How does an online account work between the Social securty office and the person requesting an online account I asked for one and did not understand it at all I was told my CCSF college ID was known by the SSI office and they could help me with My tutions

  8. Until you figure out a way for us Americans residing overseas, and not maintaining a US physical address, to have online accounts, like everyone else, I guess we will not be able to enjoy all these benefits and conveniences.

  9. I have been waiting since April 12, 2018 for a temporary password, since I forgot mine.
    I then called the social security office and was told (which I never knew) that they couldn’t help me since I had requested a Mail in temporary password.
    I just would have liked to have know that Before, as an Option or whatever. So I haven’t gotten my temporary password now 28th of June 2018. So I continue to wait?

  10. already getting ss in the amount of 1,200,00 a month which covers my bills. my wife passed away 7 months ago and I lost 900.00 a month’ was told to contact ss about a raise in benefits.thank you; Leroy j snyder

    • We are sorry to hear of your loss, Leroy. If a person already receives retirement benefits on his or her own record, they can only apply for benefits as a widow or widower if the retirement benefit they receive is less than the benefits they would receive as a survivor.
      Please call our toll free number and speak to one of our agents to see if you’re eligible for a higher benefit amount. Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Thanks!

    • There is no raise in benefits. Your wife’s payments ended with her death. Don’t waste your time with Ray’s advice,

  11. I am 81 and took early retirement at 62. I did not work 35 years because I was a military spouse for 20 years and was unemployed much of the time because of frequent reassignments. I have been divorced for 32 years. My ex-husband is still living and collects SS. My SS is very low. Do I get credit because of MY military service? She also serves who waits! Thank you.

    • Thank you for your question, Nancy. Individuals can only get Social Security credits, if they served on active duty.

    • If you were married for ten years you are entitled to your spouses SS benefits up to 1/2 the amount if it is greater than what you are getting now. If you get 500 and her gets 1500 would would get 750 instead of 500. Half of his has to be more than your benefit.

  12. I have a 16 yr old daughter who is a full time high school student. She receives SSDI dependent benefits because I am disabled. Can she work part time?

  13. Hi there is an error on my reported wade earrings can we submit my income tax information online for correction ?

  17. Hi me again I would like to know if a (public affairs specialist) will answer my question I wrote above regarding my husband’s SSRD

  18. Do this new application to report wages also include wages from temporary employment as FICA is withdrawn and I do not see that at the end of the year. Please advise.

  19. I’M not. Getting all of the money for which I’m intitled to all they say that because my husband gets his that all I’m intitled to is $219.00 a month so that’s all I get, to live on I heard I should get $735.00.

  20. For people who work under contracts with ongoing payments throughout the duration of the contract, how can we report the finish of a contract and payment termination?

  21. I tried to get signed up for the wage report app. It said it sent me a code. I did not receive the code. What can I do?

  22. Our government has don nothing to help Seniors! Im sure, from what I have read, the goal is to kill of the elderly, saying they are too expensive to carry. Could that be because our govt steals our money, using it for other projects, and to fill govt pockets? Yes!
    Im a Senior who put into Social Security…it IS MY MONEY!!! Yet our govt tells us if we can have our own money or not! One does for another, making promises, just for money…as if they were not making enough!!! I am 63, with many medical issues, cannot work, and refused what is mine to begin with!! I have no insurance & no income.

    Guess if I were a radical muslim, or an illegal I could get plenty of money! This is wrong on every level. Govt puts them above American Citizens. I, for 1, do not want them here, robbing, raping, killing, as they are doing. They should be allowed ONLY IF they go thru the legal channels, and become an American Citizens.

    Already our pitiful govt allows muslims to exercise their beliefs, even when they commit unjust, illegal actions in America. They can use their own Sharia law, but, WTF??? They should have to conform to our laws, or leave! Common sense knows this is true!!!

    People are fed up with our govt giving them all legal leways, and ignoring American & State Laws! If/when they invade our areas, we will protect ourselves from them. God knows our govt will NOT protect us!!!! If our govt wont/cant do this, Americans will do it for themselves!!

    And our govt wonders why we do not want to vote! Im betting that mostly every govt official is a liar, thief, underhanded, murders, screws the American people. I do NOT trust one word that comes from their mouth’s!!

    Our govt really sucks!!!

    • I AGREE 1,000% THE SOONER WE TAKE ACTION THE BETTER. OR WE WONT HAVE AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL, HELL ON EARTH IS WHAT WILL BECOME OF OUR BEAUTIFUL HOME OF THE BRAVE. SCREW YOU LIBERALS ALL OF YOU!!

  23. My attorney has filed an appeal for my case. It has been several months. Is there a time frame for the hearing to take place?

    • Hello Pat, the length of time it takes to get a hearing can vary from state to state. We attempt to resolve all claims promptly, but there may be delays due to the volume of pending appeals in your area.
      Please continue working with your attorney and local hearing office on specific questions about your case.
      Thank you for your support and for using our blog!

  24. The wage report button is MISSING from the MYSSA site.
    It used to be right on the front page, ut hasn’t been there all month.
    There was an update overnight on 07/20, but that did not fix it.

    Yes, I have tried other browsers, other computers and on mobile.
    No, I do not have any ad blockers installed.

    Phone support for SSA knows nothing and is unable to help.

    Please fix this

  25. There was another MYSSA site update overnight on 07/21.
    That also did NOT fix the problem.

    The Wage Report button or link is NOT on any menu or submenu for reporting paystub earnings for SSDI recipients on MYSSA after logging in.

    The MYSSA login is what I have been using all this time to submit my paystub earnings. It used to be right on the frnt page after logging in.

    I tried phone support several times in July. Their either did not know it wasn’t working, couldn’t be of any help or directed me ti use the “Business Services” of SSA. I looked at Business Services, bit that will NOT work.
    Those options in Business Services do not apply to SSDI recipients who are submitting paystubs themselves.

    Do you have a timeframe when this will be fixed on the MYSSA site?

    Thank you

    • We apologize for the inconvenience, Phil. We referred the situation to our “Systems” department and they are currently working on a resolution.
      Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

      • Will you please post here when it is resolved. 08/12/18 and still no way to report earnings other than by mail or a visit to the local office.

        Does the systems dept have a timeline at least when it might be fixed?

  27. I’m disable and like to knw if the ticket to work have any program available as a customer services work at home. Also were at the jobs training location

  28. My spouse is receiving Disability SS. I am still employed and contemplating early retirement at 62. I’m going to use bogus numbers in my equation. Let’s say I receive $1,200 monthly and my husband receives $2,000 do I get according to the scale 33.7% of his to bring my benefit up? Or, does the same spousal rule apply up to 50% of the greater one only if the 50% is greater than my benefit? The 50% would be $1000. and that is less than my benefit so I would not get anything from his??

    • Thanks for the question, Dee. Your benefit as a spouse can be equal to one-half of your husband’s full retirement amount only if you start receiving those benefits at your full retirement age. If you begin to receive benefits at age 62 or prior to your full retirement age, your benefits are reduced. The reduction factors are permanently applied to all of the benefits you qualify for once you opt to start benefits at age 62 or at any time prior to your full retirement age.

      Remember, if you qualify for your own retirement benefits and for benefits as a spouse, we always pay your own benefits first. If your benefits as a spouse are higher than your own retirement benefits, you will get a combination of benefits equaling the higher spouse benefit.

      See our Retirement Planner: Benefits For Your Spouse for more information. Also, to compute the effect on your benefit amount if you file for early retirement as well as to compute the effect on your spouse’s benefits if you file for early retirement, check out our Early or Late Retirement Calculator and our Benefits for Spouses Calculator.

  29. I have an opportunity to be a caregiver to my elderly mother how much will it effect dollar amount I receive from SSI.

    Thank you Duncan
