SSA Tax Replacement Forms Available Online

February 1, 2017

You’ve finally sat down to work on your taxes and you’re ready to file today—until you notice that you’re missing your SSA-1099! Now what?  SSA makes it easy to get the replacement Social Security tax forms you need. But first, double-check your stack of mail—you may already have the one we mailed to you in January.

An SSA-1099, or Benefit Statement, is a tax form Social Security mails each year in January to people who receive Social Security benefits. It shows the total amount of Social Security benefits received in the previous year so people know how much Social Security income to report to IRS on their tax return.

For noncitizens who live outside of the United States and who received or repaid Social Security benefits last year, we will send form SSA-1042S instead. The forms SSA-1099 and SSA-1042S are not available for people who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

If you live in the United States and need a replacement form SSA-1099 or SSA-1042S, you can obtain an instant replacement, quickly and easily. The online replacement form is available beginning February 1, 2017.  In order to obtain the replacement, you will have to set up an online Social Security account.
