Replacement Forms SSA-1099 and SSA-1042S Available Online
A recent enhancement to the Social Security Administration's (SSA's) website allows individuals to obtain replacement Form SSA-1099 or Form SSA-1042S this tax season through an account created at www.ssa.gov/myaccount/ . In addition, an online mySocial Security account may be used to track earnings, estimate future benefits, change an address, start or change direct deposit, or for those currently receiving benefits, request a letter with proof of benefits. Medicare enrollees may obtain a benefit verification letter, check benefit and payment information, verify earnings records, change an address and phone number, start or update benefit payment direct deposit. A mySocial Security account may be only created and used for an individual's personal information. An account cannot be created or used on behalf of another person, even with written permission.
