Incorrect Earnings Record

January 9, 2013

The Social Security Administration’s website allows workers to access earnings records.  Three times in the past two months, I have review records of individuals who had earnings posted to their account that were incorrect.  SSA allows individuals to correct earnings with a form that is also available online.  I strongly encourage people to look over their SSA earnings record yearly and compare the SSA figure to the earnings reported to the IRS.  The amounts should match.  If not, a correction is in order.  SSA places times limits on the ability to correct an earnings record, so if you need to make a correction, do so promptly.
