New Wage Reporting Application

June 28, 2018 • By

Last Updated: July 30, 2021

woman on computer On June 2, 2018, new capabilities were added to my Social Security accounts. The my Social Security online portal now accepts wage reports electronically from Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients and deemors, concurrent beneficiaries, and representative payees. This capability had been available only to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) beneficiaries and their representative payees.

This new application makes it possible to avoid visits to a field office to report wages in person.  However, users must still contact an office to report when they first start working for each new employer. It’s also important to note that representative payees are able to report wages, but won’t have access to beneficiaries’ or recipient’s other information. When you sign up for or log in to your personal my Social Security account, you’ll have access to this convenient application on your desktop, laptop, and mobile device. After you report your wages online, you can save or print a copy of your receipt.

We’re expanding and improving our services to put you in control of your time by providing applications and services when, where, and how you need them.

    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?

    • Ray F.

      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.

        Has this changed very recently? I just (this morning) received a call from our local office telling me (as a rep payee fro my disabled/working son) to use the app to report his wages (yet according to the blog I cannot set up a mySS for my son).

        • Ray F.

          Individuals receiving Social Security disability benefits and their representative payees may use my Social Security to report wages online. Using their own my Social Security account, representative payees can report wages for any beneficiary they represent who works and receives Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.
          Visit: https://www.ssa.gov/hlp/mySSA/df-mywr.html for more information. Thanks!

    • Snarky

      Yes, you can call in, mail in stubs, and do what you’ve always done. See long-winded answer below.

    • Snarky

      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.

      • Angry

        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!

        • Disgusting m.

NOW..ON A MORE IMPORTANT AND MUCH NEEDED positive note, THANKU VETERANS OF ANY KIND, past,current,future..and their families for your service, ..and sacrifices and to all ELDERLY suffering with high prescription prices, poor care and any treatment less than RESPECT.and dignity …. I APOLOGIZE FOR OUR ENTIRE HUMAN RACE for such backwards behaviors in treating you who are the most undeserving AT ALL. (Sparky needs a pet/a relationship/a life)

    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.

    • Paul

      Why are you using paystubs, you should use your W2 used for you federal/state incone reporting.

      What did he do behind you back?

      • Snarky

        People on SSI are required to report wages monthly. The W2 form is useless.

  10. Henry c.

    Question been a disabled veteran with 90% dissability do.i.qualify for extra SS money??

    • Ray F.

      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.

    • Snarky

      No, your disability payments from the VA is too high to receive SSI. And now for a long-winded answer see below!!

      • Dee

        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.
