Our CPA just called...

Our CPA just called and asked for some numbers from our 2017 BENEFIT AMOUNTS forms which we didn't receive for 2017. In fact, our last statement was from 2016. The information he needs are: Total paid before deductions, Medicare premiums, voluntary Federal tax w/h, and any other deductions before the net checks were deposited into our bank account. What information do you need from me right now to give us the info required to speak to us about our account?

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?

Do you need our Social Security numbers?
