Social Security Administration Is Now Offering Replacement Tax Form Online


SSA-1099 is a tax form that the Social Security Administration (SSA) mails to everyone receiving Social Security benefits.

People typically receive the form in January; but since tax season is only just beginning, recipients often lose the form before they can fill it out.

In fact, 1.7 million people every year contact the SSA and ask for a replacement form, according to USA Today.

In past years, you would need to call the SSA (800-772-1213) for a new form, and then wait up to 10 days to receive it in the mail. The only other option was going to a local Social Security office to pick up the form.

But now, the SSA is making it easier to get a replacement form.

Social Security recipients can now access the form online and print it out on their home computer.

The SSA explains:

With this new online service, people now only need to create a my Social Security account, or log into their existing one. Once there, they can view and print their SSA-1099 or request to have a new one mailed to them—all online.

my Social Security is a secure, online account people use beginning in their working years and continuing throughout the time they receive Social Security benefits.


Beneficiaries will now be able to immediately get their SSA-1099 replaced without needing to call or visit an office and often wait for a replacement form in the mail.
