You can order a detailed earnings summary from the SSA by using THIS form. It can tell you what all employers paid you, their addresses and the amounts. If you see one that is NOT part of your work history, you may have someone using your number. What would be nice, kind of, is if YOU get the credit for those taxes paid when you retire - bigger benefit!
