      • Change the limit restrictions on those who are working and receiving Social Security Benefits on lower income People who make less than 25,000 a year. Make it easier for them to keep their benefits. Early retirement for those people is because they have no choice. Their regular income is to low to meet the markets demands in living expenses. And getting another job at the age of 62 for most Americans is harder to get because younger people are taking the jobs up. Anyone who makes over 25,000 a year do not change the income restriction. Only on the lower income people who make less. Their income is still contributing to Social Security benefits. They can keep their Insurance with their companies until they are able to receive Medicare at a later time. Gives them a better chance to bring their lower income status to a more stable level where they are not looking for other benefits to maintain standard living expenses.

    • oh really mr. borland. I have been trying to download my SS-1099 for a couple of days without success. It keeps telling me that it is not available. I have signed on and have followed the directions. For some reason I was not mailed or the post office lost the benefit statement. The website is a disgrace please get your act together. I have also asked the s.s. to mail me another one hopefully I will get it soon so I don’t have to cancel another appointment with my tax people who do my returns. I am not happy about the terrible service that I have been receiving. I doubt you will respond to me, but you should check out the website because it is not working for me, and please don’t blame me or my computer. Its the s.s. fault

      • The MYSSA accounts work fine, you, or anyone for that matter don’t have access to reprint their 1099’s until February 1st of EVERY year!

        This is because they are being mailed out from the processing centers from January 1st UNTIL January 31st of EVERY year!

        After February 1st you can log on to your MYSSA account and print one, call 1 800 772 1213 and request them to mail you a replacement or walk into your local Social Security office and they can print you one on the stop.

        How are you receiving terrible service???

        The 1099’s are mailed out and people don’t have access to replacements until February 1st EVERY year!!!!

        Make sure your mailing address is correct with Social Security and all 1099’s are sent first class mail, if you didn’t receive yours, how is that Social Security’s fault?

        The website works fine, I suggest you take a computer comprehension course.

        • oh really I don’t see why I can’t download the ss 1099 am I the only one that can’t download it. the message on the website says that they are not available and I should check back later. so in all the country I’m the only one who can’t download it, really jeff you are down right rude. the message posted on the website is that these statements are not available why don’t you check it out yourself instead of insulting me. There is also a message that the website is going to be undergoing maintenance I guess I’m imagining that also. I can see all my info on the website by the way so my computer skills are fine how are yours?? P.S. I assume you mean on the spot and not on the stop.

        • why are we given our Social Security money away to illegal aliens, which never worked for to earn collecting Social Security benefit? The fact of the matter is: I am not getting a right amount of my Social Security by the way. Would it be able to rectify it, and ratify the amount? Military plus Civilian Life paying Social Security All along..Same SSN….Thanks

          • I agree I feel that we are the forgotten ones the money that we are supposed to get is being given to the elligals and our governor doesn’t care as long as she gets her pay that is all that matters so sad

    • Do you want people to get their identity stolen? The SSA-1099 form they mail has your Social Security number on it. The identity thieves goes after the mail.

      You must not care about people’s identity being stolen. It is easy to get their birth date knowing the person’s name and house address.

  1. Thank you for the emails that keep us up to date. There are always those that use this website to complain and those that make fun of the remarks but this administration puts out timely and informative information. Keep it up.

    • Thank you Susan! Your thoughts are important to us and we’re pleased when feedback is positive. We try hard to provide the best possible service to our customers and your satisfaction is our reward.

  2. They shouldn’t discontinue the paper statement even in this age of digital. It is our proof of benefits against scammers plus not all of us have personal computers.

    • The identity thief scammed are the ones stealing the SSA-1099 form from the mailbox. It has your Social Security number on it. It is easy to find out your birthday with your name and address.

    • Some employers are stupid and mail you your 1099.

      The scammers steal your 1099 from the mailbox. You don’t have your 1099 to file your taxes. You wait on them to mail you another 1099. The scammers file your taxes before you do and rip off the IRS. Then you have to fight the IRS because the IRS wants you to pay back the money.

    • Hi Raymond. At this time you must have a U. S. mailing address to create or to access your online account from outside the United States. People with APO/FPO/DPO addresses can create an account overseas, but our system does not support registration and account creation for users with a foreign address yet. When living abroad please contact your local U.S. embassy or consulate for any assistance related to your Social Security benefits.

    • Why are we not allowed to file tax returns??? Both hubby and I are on Social Security and we receive small pension checks.We pay taxes on everything,why can’t we get a refund??? Thank you

      • If you did not have any taxes withheld from your pension or SS checks, and did not pay any estimated taxes, there are no taxes for you to have refunded. There are “refundable credits” for certain people who do not have any withheld, but these are people who have “earned income” or are eligible for “child tax credits” or “education tax credits”. Most people on SS or receiving pensions do not qualify for those tax credits and refunds.

    • You may not owe anything. Your SS benefits might not be taxable. There is a special schedule that determines the amount of SS benefits that are taxable. At the lower end of the income scale, only 50% of the SS benefits are taxable, but this income is offset by your Standard Deduction $ 6,300/person plus you Personal Exemption of
      $ 4,050. Therefore, there would be no tax due for most people who have only $ 20,000 of SS benefits. Even a small amount of pension might not even result in a tax due.

      • Some people who get Social Security must pay federal income taxes on their benefits. But, no one pays taxes on more than 85 percent of their Social Security benefits.
        You must pay taxes on your benefits if you file a federal tax return as an “individual” and your “combined income” exceeds $25,000. If you file a joint return, you must pay taxes if you and your spouse have “combined income” of more than $32,000. If you are married and file a separate return, you probably will have to pay taxes on your benefits.
        See Benefits Planner: Income Taxes and Your Social Security Benefits for more information.

  3. I am from Ethiopia still I did not received any refund and I don’t have SSN. because of identity thefts now I need your help about my refund & ssn. to my past and future benefits.

    • If you worked, you were required to have obtained a SS#. Until you get one, there is no place for the SSA or IRS to credit you for your income and tax withholdings.You might actually owe taxes, and not even be eligible for a refund. If you do not get a SS# because you are afraid of “identity theft”, you should not be eligible to get a job anywhere in the US because your employers are required for you to fill out an I-9 form, and a W-4 withholding form before you are allowed to start to work. If you are an “independent contractor”, then the company you are going to provide services to is required to get your SS# from you so they can issue you a 1099-MISC at the end of the year. They should never pay you until you provide them documentation of your SS#.

    • For tax questions, you will need to contact the IRS. Their toll-free number is 1-800-829-1040. We hope this helps.

  4. Need some help On reporting a death of a veteran who was retired and living in Korea and was receiving SS benefits. Can that be reported to the Office In Manila and what paper work is required so that his spouse can file for benefits and what forms need to be submitted. Thank you

    • Thank you for contacting us John. You cannot report a death or apply for survivors’ benefits online. We ask that customers living abroad contact their nearest U.S. Embassy for assistance. This link includes the email address and telephone number of the U.S. Embassy in Manila. Also, our Office of International Operations home page provides more information to assist our customers living abroad.

  5. If you aren’t mailing the 1099 form out anymore & one can get it in the govt. web page , that’s a grate advance for millions of retirees.
    I’m presently living abroad, in my case in particular how can I get it from now on, I can not open an acct in the SSA web page due being out of the States, the system automatically rejects you for been abroad.
    Any legal explanation, please.
    Thank you

  6. I never got my 1099 for taxes in the mail or my new cost of living increase. I have tried to create an account twice and it says it doesn’t exist. Can you please send me one of each? my address is current on your file.

    • We apologize for the inconveniences Joan. If you are having difficulties with your personal my Social Security account, please call 1-800-772-1213 for assistance. After you hear “Briefly tell me why you are calling,” say “Help Desk” for help with a my Social Security account. At the same time, you can also request a copy of your SSA-1099 form and a copy of your benefit verification letter for 2017. Or you can contact your local Social Security office directly. Thank you.

  7. MY WIFE RECENTLY APPLIED FOR SOCIAL SECURITY AND WOULD LIKE TAXES DEDUCTED FROM HER DISTRIBUTION. HOW DOES SHE MAKE THIS CHANGE?

    PLEASE ADVISE
    THANK YOU

  8. It appears my post has been removed, so here it goes again.
    What ever you do , don’t file on -line. Here is why. It is long, but worth the read.

    The Social Security Administration Would Frighten Franz Kafka and Amuse “Ernestine.”

    It might seem a stretch to conflate the Social Security Administration with the writer Franz Kafka, the author of TheTrial and the Castle , and the comedienne Lily Tomlin’s portrayal of “Ernestine”, a phone company “spokes person,” but walk with me down absurdity lane.

    In his two works, Kafka focuses on the absurdity of the world exacerbated by anonymous, domineering, insensitive bureaucracies pursuing governmental policies that are at best illogical and at worse, patently unfair, unforgiving, and often deadly. Lilly Tomlin’s “Ernestine”, frequently opined disdainfully about customer complaints by saying, “ we don’t care, we’re the phone company.” These two themes, faceless bureaucracies inefficiently and unfairly doing a government’s business, reinforced by a monopolistic attitude of not caring about citizen redress, applies to the Social Security (SS ) Administration. As a Kafkaesque governmental entity its leadership doesn’t care about legitimate complaints , because , to channel “Ernestine”- “we don’t care, we’re the Social Security Administration”.

    A recent article in the Baltimore Sun highlighted the absence of a permanent Social Security Administrator, and that there is a 20 month backlog in reviewing disability claims. For me, this backlog has nothing to do with a lack of leadership or personnel, but is a deliberate ploy to stone wall legitimate claims so as to make the claimant go away because of sheer despondency at getting a resolution to the appeal.

    I am a retired Baltimore Police Sergeant and when working I did not contribute to the SS system. But after retiring I earned enough quarters to qualify for SS benefits and consequently Medicare. I applied , on- line, for benefits on January 3rd 2010, and answered yes to the questions regarding pension benefits. In an anonymous letter dated March 15, 2016, SS stated that I allegedly owed $27,577.00 in over payments based on the Windfall Elimination Provision because of my pension, and I had 30 days to repay. I say allegedly when I refer to any of the figures quoted by SS because I have no idea of their accuracy. Included with the letter was a repayment envelope and I didn’t have to use a stamp-how considerate. Now this SS saga became Kafkaesque, instead of just consummate incompetency.

    SS has a multitiered appeal protocol. I filed on March 29, 2016 and stated SS was at fault for the alleged overpayment. Naively, I thought requesting an informal meeting, per a SS’s appeal protocol, would resolve the issue. Approximately eight months later, in a letter dated November 15, 2016, SS admitted fault in processing my application without taking into account my pension. However, I would be getting a letter explaining my “new overpayment”- a decision that I could again appeal. These SS letters are sent regular snail mail with SS assuming you get them without proof of delivery. Nice gambit, particularly when you are given a 30/60 day window to appeal.

    A letter dated January 24, 2017 claimed I allegedly owed $23,841.00. No mention of my informal meeting request or that the alleged overpayment added to my gross income for tax purposes. SS used $3,736.00 of my benefits to recover part of the alleged overpayment, and if I didn’t remit the $23k plus in 30 days, my entire SS benefit would be used to recover the money.But, I could appeal for a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALD) to contest.

    This depressing Kafkaesque joke became more surreal. On February 2nd, I submitted an appeal for an ALD hearing with supportive documentation to my assigned SS office. On Saturday , February 4th, I received a letter from SS ,dated February 3, 2017, and with this letter the hammer fell . My benefit was terminated effective the March 2017 payment, including my Medicare premium, until November 2020. Consequently,I will have to pay out of pocket for my Medicare health coverage and I recently received the first premium bill with billing date if 1/27/2017. Meaning, that SS /Medicare processed a premium bill 3 days after the date of the last SS letter I received stating I could appeal. So much for this scam of an appeal system. The insane thing is that there are two more appeal steps I am entitled to, but I know what they are worth. Your appeal is denied even before your appeal steps are exhausted, and you are punished accordingly based on an anonymous whim. – Kafka smiles in his grave.

    Compared to what many Americans experience at the anonymous “hands” of the Social Security Administration, my SS absurdity pales, but it exemplifies what the Administration thinks of the American public, “we don’t care, we are the Social Security Administration.”

  9. Hi, my dad passed last May. My mom needs his 1099 for her tax filing, but we never received it. How can we get a replacement copy? Thanks!

    • We’re sorry to hear about the loss of your father Kimberly. In certain cases, we may disclose SSA-1099 information from the record of a deceased person, only to a survivor of the deceased and only if we are able to establish the relationship of the survivor to the deceased based on SSA records. Your mother will need to go into the local Social Security office with proper identification and supporting documents to make a request for a replacement SSA-1099. If you need more information, call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778), Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. and ask a representative for assistance. We hope this information helps.

  10. What is the best way for elderly persons without computers to obtain replacement 1099 forms? My dad did not think he needed it, and threw it away. He does not have a computer, and the phone is beyond him too.

  11. Good morning, in order to get a copy of the SSA-1099 for my mother who passed away last year, I see that I need to go to the “local” SS Office with the proper documentation. Can I go to my local office, or do I need to travel to hers? And, is this the needed documentation: Letter of Testamentary, Death Certificate, my Drivers License? Thanks

  12. I MOVED MY MOTHER TO MEMORY CARE FROM ASSISTED LIVING HOW CAN I GET HER 1099 SHE CANNOT ANSWER QUESTIONS ON THE PHONE BUT I AM HER MEDICAL SERROGATE

    • Hello, Cindy. You may wish to consider becoming your mother’s representative payee. This would allow you to obtain necessary proofs from Social Security on her behalf. Having power of attorney, being an authorized representative, or having a joint bank account with the beneficiary is not the same as being a representative payee. These arrangements do not give legal authority to negotiate and manage a beneficiary’s Social Security and/or SSI benefits. In order to be a payee, you must apply for and be appointed by Social Security. A face-to-face interview is required. To make an appointment with your local office or to discuss further, call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213. Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions web page for more information. Thanks.

    • Hello Haskel. If you are having difficulties with your personal my Social Security account, please call 1-800-772-1213 for assistance. After you hear “Briefly tell me why you are calling,” say “Help Desk” for help with a my Social Security account. Sometimes, it might be best to visit your local Social Security office for further assistance. Thanks.

  13. I am curious as to what my 2018 social security disability payments will be. Does anyone know when the forecast earnings statements come out? I tried to access my own statement online, but it locked me out and said I was in putting info that did not mesh with their info to prove my identity . I put in my personal info and it said my statement of identity proof is not the same as theirs.I know I can wait till tomorrow and speak to an agent but today it is urgent to have a copy of my future disability pmt including the cola.I am getting benefits now so to lock me out makes no sense.

    Thank you
    Nancy

  15. I received a letter from SSA yesterday. I read the front page of information , and when I turned over the page, I didn’t see any writing or number. It didn’t look like something I needed to save, so I shredded it with 4 charity requests. My husband said the information about my income for next year’s on the back side. I’d like a replacement for the SSA letter I destroyed.

  16. I received a notice from social security stating what my income will be for 2018 but it was torn up in the mail and I need another one as I live in controlled housing and need this paper as soon as I am able to obtain it.
    I am so sorry for the the late notice.

  17. It was really wonderful to be able to take care of this business online today. I have been trying to take of this at the local office, but did not have the time to sit and wait until it was my turn. What a relief to be able to do it this way. Thanks.

  18. Is it possible to get a copy of the Representative Payee Report that was mailed? I have not received the notice for filing the annual report for this year?

    • Hi Dorothy. Please call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213 and one of our agents will assist you. Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Thanks!

  19. please forward to me a duplicate form of the new benefit amount for 2018. The post office did not deliver one to me and my husband has had his almost 2 weeks and usually they come together. I have tried calling and they don’t understand what I want.

    • Hi Virginia. The cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) notices for 2018 are mailed during the month of December. If you need proof you get Social Security benefits, Supplemental Security (SSI) Income or Medicare, you can request a benefit verification letter online by using your my Social Security account. Thanks.

  20. I have written you previous to this and am not sure I know what you want. All I need is a duplicate form showing what I will be getting, together with deductions for the upcoming year 2018. The post office did not deliver mine – sometimes the mail is delivered to the wrong place (more than once) and sometimes it is also discarded. Thanks for resending.

  21. I can’t find my 2018 beneficiary statement that was mailed to make and I can’t figure out how to get a replacement on-line. Please help!

  22. web site is worthless. This is Dec 2017 and I want to download 2016 SSA 1099. It can’t be done. Web site instructs me to either call an 800 which I did and got a prerecorded message where I cant talk to a live person or go to local office. SO FRUSTRATING!

  23. I Lost my Form SSA-1099-Social Security Benefits Statement for 2015 for tax income I need a copy
    How can I get a copy for 2015 yr.

    • The SSA-1099 showing the amount of benefits paid during last year and the amount of any voluntary Federal tax withheld, is mailed by January 31 each year.

  24. I wanted to create a my Social Security account; however, I was informed that since I have my credit report locked with the three credit agencies I can not do it on line.

    Just another example of customer unfriendly government.

    • We apologize for the inconvenience, Robert. You’re right, you cannot create a my Social Security account online if you have a security freeze, fraud alert, or both on your credit report. You can still create an account without removing the security freeze or fraud alert, but you will have to visit your local Social Security office. Thanks!

  25. The SSA-1099 for 2017 arrived damaged. Can you mail me another one? I don’t want to establish an account.
    Thank you.

  28. I am disappointed with your supposed service of obtaining a replacement 1099 form for 2016, which I need immediately to complete other personal business.
    I opened an account a few years ago, and wrote down my user name and password for later use. Today I made 3 attempts to obtain said information without success and was then locked out for 24 hours. Today being a Sunday, I don’t expect any help, and I do not look forward to having a very long telephone wait tomorrow.

    • We’re sorry for the inconvenience, Richard. You can speak to a Social Security representative for help with a my Social Security account between the hours of 7 a.m. and 12 midnight (Eastern Time), Monday through Friday.

  29. I have not had to deal with social security for several years until now, but I hesitate to do so because of the last experience. I displayed my SS card which I obtained when I was 14 years old back in 1955. My signature would be one of a very neat person attending public schools. I was then required to sign a document and guess what, my current signature did not look anything like my 60 old school boy signature. The young lady with the experience in life of a empty Coke bottle denied my transaction because the signatures did not match. Rather than be denied service and have to try again I tried to master my old signature, which to me was a current act of FORGERY, because that was not my signature as a 75 year old with arthritic hands. Of course, the coke bottle didn’t understand the difference years make.

    My husband was Elton Dwayne Whitley. His social security number was *** – ** – ***.

  36. Tried to get copy of deceased husband 1099 to do taxes. It wasn’t forwarded to me and can’t do it on line because they locked his account . Then after being on hold for an hour they say I have to go into local social security offfic to get it. They should just say that online instead of all the other stuff that doesn’t work.

    • We’re sorry to hear about the loss of your husband, Darlene and truly apologize for any inconvenience.
      In certain cases, we may disclose SSA-1099 information from the record of a deceased person, only to a survivor of the deceased and only if we are able to establish the relationship of the survivor to the deceased based on SSA records. Please make sure you have proper identification and supporting documents when you go into the local Social Security office to make a request for a copy of your husband’s SSA-1099.
      We appreciate your feedback and thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.

  37. I have tried up a “my” account but get a message that my information does not match. I have move during the last year but have updated my information with SS.

    Thank you

  38. This site is very difficult to use. After trying 10 unique usernames – some with randomn numbers mixed with randomn letters…..every rejection said the username was in use. There isn’t enough time in the day to mess with this….

    And all I needed was a copy of my SSA-1099!!! A response in 4 to 6 weeks is not helpful to file an income tax return!

    Bah, huimbug.

  39. Carrell C. Crowder SSN *** – ** – *** of which Loyd K. Crowder, her spouse, was the payee. Carrell passed away on January 28, 2018. The payment that she would have received for Feb. 2018 was direct deposited, and then pulled back after notification of her death. I then received a letter stating I would have to return that benefit for Jan because there is no payments for the month in which the person being paid the benefit died. I then wrote a check in the amount of $884.00 on Feb. 21 2018 to cover the Jan. payment. This Jan, we received the SS 1099 showing that $884.00 in box 3 and none in box 4 on. I would like it corrected so I do not have to claim it on my taxes for 2018 because Carrell had no income from SS for 2018

  40. You say: “creating a secure account is very easy to do and usually takes less than 15 minutes.” Judging by comments on other sites, I am among many thousands of people who find that this is not true at all. In fact I have spent hours trying to do this, including a lot of time on hold, only to find that my correct answers to my credit questions are not accepted as correct by the system, and I am therefore locked out permanently because I tried 3 times (per advice of first phone helper to keep trying.) Now I am told that my only recourse is to physically go to a Social Security office (closest one is over an hour away) and wait for someone to have time to provide me with a code to circumvent this broken system. To add insult to injury, the phone survey afterwards asks if I requested a callback, but there is nowhere to request such a callback – even the Helpdesk person I got this morning told me it existed but was unable to find it anywhere on the website, even with the help of his supervisor, and it is certainly not in the menu when you call.

    We HAVE to be able to do better than this!!

  41. I CAN’T ACCESS MY SOCIAL SECURITY ACCOUNT. YOUR COMPUTER WON’T TAKE ANYTHING I ENTER..HOW AM I SUPPOWE TO GET MY TAX FORMS OR RECEIVE ANY NOTICES????

  46. Trying to find out if they have sent out the 1099 forms for social security. We haven’t received one in the mail yet and I read where they were supposed to send them out the first of the year

  47. I do not want to establish a Social Security account on line. Isn’t there an easier way to just access my number and print out a replacement 1099? It’s just too risky to put all of the information they want to establish an account and to visit a local Social Security office takes up more time than I have left to live!

  51. I need my SSA 1099. For the years 2015 and 2016. I tried My Social Security page and said it wasn’t valid with my answers. I couldn’t access the account. Please call me. So I can get my 1099′ S.

  52. I haven’t received my 2017 SSA-1099. Diane Oliver
    XXX-XX-XXXX. On my social security account, no form comes up in Replacement documents area> How do I
    get it? They said it would be mailed in Feb. nothing yet

    • Hello Diane. The Form SSA-1099 is mailed each year in January to people who receive Social Security benefits. It shows the total amount of benefits you received from Social Security in the previous year so you know how much Social Security income to report to IRS on your tax return.
      If you need a replacement, you can get one quickly and easily beginning February 1st by using your online my Social Security account.
      Just a reminder – Please be cautious about posting personal information on social media. Thanks!

  53. This is not true in all cases. I collect spousal benefits, with a government pension offset. My SSA benefits are applied fully to Medicare. My onlone SS account shows no data, and does not have a tab to request a 1099 form, which incidentially, I have not received. Apparently SSA doe not automatically send these out to people in my situation and I am forced to scramble every year to get the form generated. Not to mention being unable to file tax returns for want of the formal document. You folks need to fix the problem or stop telling everyone how easy it is to obtain a replacement document.

  84. I went online to establish an SSA.My Account. They wanted info from me which is reasonable. They wanted the name of a credit card I applied for in 2014. I had no idea. I don’t usually apply for credit cards as my husband does and I am on them. They wanted the name of my closed mortgage account. My closed car loan account and a bank card. I did not answer the questions as they wanted so they said come back tomorrow..I still will not know the answers. How about some better questions. I need my 1099.

  85. Hello my name is Cindy Lynn Aloi. I have durable power of attorney for my mother Denise Amelie Aloi and am co trustee of her trust. I also have been supervising her tax returns since my father, Anthony John Aloi, passed on 01/11/2011.
    My mother is currently residing at The Burlington Health and Rehab facility in Burlington Vermont. This year I did not receive a SSA-1099. Last year it was sent as forwarded mail from her previous address, Pillsbury Manor, an assisted living facility.
    This year I did not receive her SS benefit statement. Please inform me how to obtain one as I am running out of tax time!
    Thank you!

    • Hello Cindy, you may be interested in applying to become your mother’s representative payee.
      A Representative Payee is different than having “Power of Attorney”. As a representative payee, you will be able to get a replacement copy of your mother’s Form SSA-1099, also it will make it easier for you in the future to update information on your mother’s record.
      You will have to contact your local Social Security office for a face-to-face interview to apply to be your mother’s representative payee.
      When friends or family are not able to serve as payees, Social Security looks for qualified organizations to be representative payees. In this case, the nursing facility may consider applying to be the representative payee. Please consider talking with the nursing facility manager or administrator about this important issue, they will contact us if they have specific questions or to understand the facility’s responsibilities. We understand how inconvenient this may be for you, but hope you understand our role in protecting everyone’s personal information.
      Please read our publication: A Guide For Representative Payees for more information.
      For further assistance or to make an appointment, please call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213. Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Thanks!

    Is there a way to get this form without going to the office?

    • We’re sorry to hear about the loss of your husband, Beverly. In certain cases, we may disclose SSA-1099 information from the record of a deceased person, only to a survivor of the deceased and only if we are able to establish the relationship of the survivor to the deceased based on SSA records. You do need to contact the local Social Security office to make a request for your husband’s replacement SSA-1099. Thanks.

  94. I AM a U.S. citizen living overseas. Since I don’t have a U.S. address, I can’t open an account online. I have not received my form SSA1099 (benefits statement) and have gotten no response from the overseas consulate that handles people living in Bermuda.

    Can you help?

  96. I am a Federal Fiduciary for a retired veteran who is suffering from Demencia(Alzheimers). I am in the process of doing his 2017 Form 1040. However he does not have his 2017 Form SSA-1099. Since he is not mobile I can not take him to the local Soc Sec Office and they will not give me a replacement. It is not legal for me to open a “My Social Security Account” in his behalf, so how can I obtain a replacement copy?

    • Thank you for your question, Carlos. Social Security takes protecting the public’s personal information very seriously. The Privacy Act prohibits Federal agencies from disclosing personal information without the person’s consent, except under certain conditions.

My 1099 form seems to have gotten lost in the shuffle). In attempting to open an account, I was asked “security” questions regarding 10 year old phone phone #s which I could not remember, and car or mortgage payments differing by just a few dollars which I also do not remember (I pay those bills electronically so it takes care of itself, so to speak). There has to be a better way to do this!!!!!

  127. what does ‘previous tax year’ mean? The immediately previous year? Any previous year?
    You mislead unintentionally.
    I needed the form for 2016 as a lump sum adjustment was paid in 2017 for 2016.
    Previous year misled me to believe I could access what I needed.
    I cannot.
    Additionally, someone should let customers know their password expires. That was another long wait on the phone for help which could have been avoided.
    You want to get paid? Make it easier for us who PAY to access our information so we can fill out our IRS forms.

  128. I need a corrected SSA-1099 form for my deceased spouse. He was given disability benefits which came after he died, and the total amount was reclaimed. The form says he got the money.
    I can’t go on line. The field office sent a request. My only option is to call the 1-800 number because his account has been shut down. I have called six times over 3 months and have been promised a corrected form, promised a call from a supervisor. No corrected form. No call. Each time I call it takes 25 – 80 minutes.

  142. I’m trying to get my annual statement for the previous year, not this year’s statement. I was told, on your website, to call a number and ask for “help desk.” When I called the number(800-772-1213) the lady who answered said “she was not social security” but had been receiving many calls assuming she was Soc. Sec. I then called the “hard of hearing” number (which I am) and the message machine that answered identified themselves as Jason, but not w/ Soc. Sec. I then called the local number, 866-755-4334, given to me on my last Soc. Sec. statement and received the response “this is not a working number. I NEED to talk to someone. My request is a simple one. PLEASE HELP!!!

  146. Your artical mentions ….

    If you currently live in the United States and you need a replacement form SSA-1099
    and
    If you’re a noncitizen who lives outside of the United States

    But your article doesn’t mention what to do if you are a citizen and you live outside the U.S. and you need an SSA-1099. That’s me.

    What do I do?

  147. If yo0 make a mistake in spelling or whatever how do you go back a fix it?

    Amazon.com and others let you do that.

    Maybe your webmaster can ask those other websites how to do that so that they can do it here.

    Thanks

  148. 2 months ago I called to request a replacement SSA-1099 and never received it. It was suppose to be mailed to P. O. Box 499, Hood River, OR 97031. Can you mail another one please.

    • Thanks for your question, Bruce. Social Security mails this form every January to people who receive Social Security benefits. For years prior, you can call us at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. to speak to one of our representatives for assistance.

  149. Can an individual who lives in Japan (with only a Japanese address) open an account online? If not, how can this individual receive a replacement SSA-1099 or SSA-1042S if none was received in the mail? Please advise and thank you in advance.

    • Thank you for contacting us, Erwin. The “my Social Security” authentication system requires address verification as one of the essential criteria for issuing an account. People with APO/FPO/DPO addresses can create an account overseas, but our system does not support registration and account creation for users with a foreign address yet.
      We recommend that individuals living outside the United States contact their nearest Federal Benefits Unit. Please read our publication “Your Payments While You are Outside the United States” for more important information. Thanks!

  150. The statements regarding the ability to view and/or print a 1099 form from the My Social Security Account portal (from the replacement documents tab) is false, a complete load of crock. The option does not even show up under that tab, only replacements for a card, a statement or verification letter. Completely useless….
