Social Security benefits provide a partial replacement of income for those who are retired or disabled. Employers generally send a wage and tax statement on behalf of their employees tot he Social Security Administration.

How to get your Social Security Statement online
Your Social Security Statement is available to view online at any time by opening a my Social Security account on www.ssa.gov/myaccount. This allows users to learn about their future Social Security benefits and to see their current earnings history.
Make sure to check that your Social Security number is correct on the account, and that your personal details and marital status are up to date. This will ensure that the earnings are all correct.
For workers aged 60 and over without a Social Security account, your Social Security Statements should be mailed to you three months ahead of your birthday.
How to check your earning records
You can access your Social Security earning records from the age of 18 and above by creating a MySocialSecurity account which will be linked to your payment history.
To access your records, you must first log into www.ssa.gov/myaccount, where you will find estimates of your retirement, disability and survivors benefits for the future.
Errors on your account must be corrected within just over three years or they could prevent Social Security funds being given to you.
