How to Request a Social Security Statement Online
The Social Security Administration allows you to check your statement online.

Accessing Your Statement

To create an account, you must provide your email, Social Security number and mailing address. You also must be at least 18 years old. After providing the required information, you will be asked to verify your identity by answering a few questions. You then can proceed to set up your username, password and security questions.

What's in Your Statement

Your statement contains your earnings records and documents how much income was subject to Social Security and Medicare taxes. In addition, it tells you how many credits you've earned toward qualifying for retirement benefits and what your benefits -- or the benefits for your family -- would be if you became disabled.
