  1. I need a SSA-1099 for my deceased Mother for 2019. She died Sept. 16, 2019. Her payments were sent to her nursing home. I cannot sign on to My Social Security. Her name was Anne A. Murtagh social security number *** – ** – ***.
    My mailing address is Kathleen Hannon, Esq., 6 Standish DRive, Scarsdale, NY 10583. Phone 914-472-2380.
    Please help

    • We’re sorry to hear about your loss, Kathleen. The benefit statement is mailed to the last address in our records and is intended for the spouse or executor of the deceased. If you do not have access to the mail at that address, the executor will need to go into the local field office with proof of death and proof of executorship. An SSA-1099 can also be given to someone receiving benefits on the deceased beneficiary’s record such as a spouse, parent, or child of the deceased. Unfortunately, you may need to wait for the offices to reopen. We apologize for the inconvenience.

  2. Listen:
    SSA in Waco, TX has its doors locked up tighter than a drum. I need the SSA-4926-SM letter that you mailed out in January 2020. I need this document for a home closing. I tried getting it online and the information for a New Account screwed up on me, as usual for government.
    My phone number is 254-749-5580. I need to contact someone tomorrow. I can NOT wait 5-10 buisness days to get a temporary Password. Please help me get this done.

  3. I am desperately trying to replace my SS card and can’t find what address to send the form too. Please advise. This delay could cost me from receiving HUD voucher because I can not get a copy of my card soon enough to them. This has been a nightmare. My 2020 statement does not have my SS# on it this year or it would have worked. Do I send the form to my office here in Oregon or where? And why is Oregon not able to do this online?

    • Hi Pamela, thanks for using our blog. First, realize you may not need a replacement card. You will rarely need to show it. Knowing your Social Security number is what is important. However, if you must get a replacement card, you may be able to apply online. Check out our Frequently Asked Questions web page for details on how to apply for a replacement Social Security card. If you cannot request a replacement card online, call your local office and request that we mail you an SSN printout instead of a replacement Social Security card. We are unable to process replacement Social Security card requests by phone at this time.

  4. I have misplaced my statement of what my benefits will be for 2020 , and what my wife’s benefits will be.

  5. My husband’s mother just died, and he can’t find her last year’s SSA – 1099. She never created an online SSA account.

    He called, and he was told he had to visit a SSA field office. But those offices are closed due to Covid 19, plus he lives in a different state than his mother.

    He’s just trying to file her last year’s tax return, is there no other way to get the missing SSA 1099 other than visiting a field office in person?
