How can I get a form SSA-1099/1042S, Social Security Benefit Statement?
An SSA-1099 is a tax form we mail each year in January to people who receive Social Security benefits. It shows the total amount of benefits you received from Social Security in the previous year so you know how much Social Security income to report to the IRS on your tax return. If you are a noncitizen who lives outside of the United States and you got or repaid Social Security benefits last year, we will send you form SSA-1042S instead.
If you currently live in the United States and you didn’t receive an SSA-1099 or SSA-1042S for tax year 2015 by January 31, 2016, or you misplaced your SSA-1099 or SSA-1042S, don’t fret.
Beginning on February 1, 2016, you can get an instant replacement form SSA-1099 or SSA-1042S by using your online my Social Security account. If you don’t already have an account, you can create one online. To get your replacement form SSA-1099, go to Sign In or Create an Account. Once you are logged in to your account, select the “Replacement Documents” tab to get a replacement replacement form SSA-1099 or SSA-1042S.
NOTE: The forms SSA-1099 and SSA-1042S are not available for people who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
