Every year we automatically send Social Security Statements to workers age 25 or older who are not yet getting Social Security or Medicare benefits on their own records. (We also don't send Statements to people age 62 or older who are getting benefits on someone else's record.)

Your Statement will arrive about 3 months before your birthday.

In your Statement, you will see a year-by-year display of earnings that have been reported to your Social Security record. If you find any errors in your reported earnings, please contact us right away so you can help us correct the record.

Your Statement also shows estimates of the Social Security benefits you and your family may be eligible for now and in the future.
