Social Security No Longer Mailing Paper Earnings Statements

In its continuing quest to save money, the Social Security Administration has stopped sending taxpayers annual Social Security Earnings Statements. In a brief online statement, the government says, "In light of the current budget situation, we have suspended issuing Social Security Statements. You may be able to estimate your retirement benefit using our online Retirement Estimator."

Social Security's Retirement Estimator tells a person approximately how much they can expect to receive when they reach retirement age.

So what do you do to find out how much your Disability Payments would be if you became disabled?

You have to use one of three Benefit Calculators on Social Security's website. These work fairly well. Typically, our firm finds some of the estimates to be off, but not by too much.
