102.1 How can you check your Social Security earnings record?

You can check your own Social Security earnings record by completing Form SSA-7004SM (Request for Earnings and Benefit Estimate Statement). This form is available at any Social Security office, can be requested on the SSA web site (, or by calling our toll-free number, 1-800-772-1213. We will mail a statement of your wages, any self-employment income credited to your earnings record, and other appropriate information (see § 1419) to you.

102.2 What should you do if your earnings record is inaccurate?

If you find that your earnings have not been credited correctly, contact any convenient Social Security office and ask us how to go about correcting your records. There are specific time limits for correcting an earnings record. (See §§ 1423-1427.)

Hi! I used to get the Social Security Retirement Information booklet. This booklet would tell me how much I would get monthly upon my retirement by age.

I don't get this anymore since I moved. Is there anyway that I can get one sent to me. I would appreciate any information that you can send me. Or email me and tell me how to obtain this booklet.

Thank you so much.
