  Is there a reason why I might not get a Statement automatically?
  Is there a reason why I might not get a Statement automatically?

Yes. You won't get a Social Security Statement automatically if:

  • you are under age 25, or
  • you are already receiving Social Security benefits on your record, or
  • we cannot get a current mailing address for you, or
  • you are age 62 or older and receiving Social Security benefits on someone else's record, or
  • you are a Medicare beneficiary, or
  • you requested a Statement within the past 11 months.

If you don't get a Statement automatically, you can request one online or call our toll-free number 1-800-772-1213 and ask for a request Form SSA-7004 to mail in. You will receive a Statement in the mail about 2 to 4 weeks after you request it electronically or about 4 to 6 weeks after you mail us your request.
