Millions of taxpayers are gathering the forms they need to file their federal, state, and local tax returns. If you receive Social Security benefits, one of the forms you may need is your Social Security Benefit Statement, SSA-1099/1042S.
Social Security mails these forms to all beneficiaries each January. If by February 1, you have not received your 2020 statement—or it was misplaced—you can get instant access to a printable SSA-1099/1042S online at my Social Security by selecting “Replacement Documents.”
If you do not already have a my Social Security account, opening one is quick, safe, and easy. It only takes a few minutes. In addition to getting an instant replacement SSA-1099/1042S, you can get a benefit verification letter, change your address, telephone number, start or change direct deposit information, and get your Social Security earnings record from the convenience of your home.
