Review record of earnings

Make sure our record of your yearly income is up to date.

Every year your employer tells us how much money you earned so we can update your Social Security record. If you're self-employed, you tell us directly.

We calculate your monthly retirement and disability benefit by looking at how much you've earned, so it's important to make sure your record is accurate. Check it in August to make sure last year's amount is correct.
