What should I do if I get a call claiming there's a problem with my Social Security number or account?

Frequently Asked Questions

You can report wages online using your personal my Social Security account. SSI recipients, SSDI beneficiaries, representative payees, spouses, parents, or sponsors can report wages.

You will need to have all pay stubs for wages paid in the report month. You will need to know the pay period start and end dates, gross amount paid, and the pay date before you can report your wages online.

If you are receiving SSDI only, you may report wages up to 2 years prior to the current date. You may report a maximum of 104 pay periods for a maximum of 5 employers at each session. Additional pay periods may be reported in a subsequent session.

Wages for SSI recipients can be reported for the month prior to the current month. We ask that you report within the first 6 days of the month to avoid incorrect SSI payments, but you may report at any time during the month. If you need to report your past wages (received before the prior month), you should contact us. Wages reported using your personal my Social Security account are received by us at the time of submission.

For additional options to report wages visit our SSI Wage Reporting, Wage Reporting - Ticket to Work, and SSI Spotlight on Automated Wage Reporting tools pages.
