Hi Larry, this has been simplified for speedier access to such records.
You can go now go to http://ssa.gov/myaccount
From there you create a passworded account for yourself with the SSA. You then login (remember your login details) and order which ever of the several documents you wish to download or order. In your case, you are going to look for the 2015 1099 link, and from there you can get it.
There are other helpful documents, including annual SS earnings statement, benefits verification, etc. You can change your banking info, your address, etc., should the need arise.
I hope this helps! My goal is to provide you with excellent and accurate service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.
Kindly rate me "excellent" when you are done. I look forward to assisting you in the future, should you have legal questions. Be sure to start future posts with "To ***** Esq., ONLY" if you want me to specifically answer it.
Sincerely, ***** ***** Joy, Esq.
Your online SS legal resource!
