Social Security Statements

The Social Security Administration has announced that it will resume mailing statements effective immediately. The mailing of statements had been phased out in 2011 in an effort to save money. However, last year Congress passed a bill requiring Social Security to begin mailing the statements once again. Workers can now expect to receive paper statements in the mail every five years starting  a few months before they turn 25.  Once someone turns 60 they will come every year.
