Hi. My name's Lane.

...

Are you asking about the statement that comes showing your benefit amount for the upcoming year?

...

Or are you asking about the 1099-SSA that's (sometimes) needed for tax reporting?

...

Let me know and we can go from there.

Ok, as the 1099-SSA wouldn't typically come until January, I'll assume that you mean the award letter (sometimes referred to as a benefit statement).

...

You can get this IMMEDIATELY online.

To set up or use your account to get a benefit verification letter, go to Sign In Or Create An Account.

If you can’t or don’t want to use your online account, or you need a letter for someone other than yourself, you can call Social Secuity at 1-***-***-**** (TTY 1-***-***-****), Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Please let me know if you have ANY questions at all, before rating me.

I hope you’ll rate me (using those stars, or faces on your screen, by clicking submit) based on thoroughness and accuracy, rather than any good news / bad news content.

Otherwise I’ll receive no compensation for the work here at all, from JustAnswer.

Thank you!
