Workers 25 and older are mailed Social Security Statements each year. The Statement shows the earnings that appear for each year of work on the individual worker’s Social Security record. It is important Social Security earnings records be correct so that workers can get all of the credits earned. Every year, Social Security receives reports of earnings that cannot be credited to anyone because the name and number on the reports do not match the name and number on its records. These records can, however, be claimed by the worker contacting Social Security.
