After age 60, people will receive a Statement every year. The agency expects to send nearly 48 million Statements each year. The Social Security State- ment helps people plan for their financial future. In addit~ to providing future benefit esti- mates, the Statement highlights a person's complete earnings his- tory, allowing workers to verify the accuracy of their earnings. This is important because an individual's future benefit amount is determined by the amount of their earnings over their lifetime. To date, more than 14 million people have estab- lished a personalized my Social Security account at With a my Social Security account, people may access the Statement from the comfort of their home, office or library when- ever they choose. Individuals who currently receive benefits should sign up for a my Social Security account to manage their benefit payments and, when the need arises, get an instant benefit verification letter, change their address and phone number, and start or change direct deposit of their benefit payment.
