Do you get your yearly letter from Social Security?

It is usually a 4 page brochure style statement printed in green and white.

The letter contains some important information.

It details the amounts you should receive if you retire at age 62, age 65, and age 67 1/2.

It also explains the amounts you will receive if you are disabled, and what your minor children may be able to claim.

Finally, it lists your earnings history over your lifetime.

This information is important to review to make sure that Social Security has credited you with the proper wages over the years. If they have made a mistake it may reduce the amount of Social Security Disability you are entitled to, or even keep you from getting any Social Security Disability payments.

If you do not get this important mailing you should contact your local Social Security office and  request it.
