    Default Social Security...Does anyone know

    Does anyone know if you can see online what your social security benefits are up to the current point? I've looked on their website and either I'm missing it or it isn't there. Probably missing it.
    I miss the old green papers they used to send. I kept all of them but haven't gotten any for years.
    Thanks in advance

    I'd be curious to know as well. I didn't even notice that I haven't gotten one for years. I thought because I moved.

    They quit sending them as a cost savings measure.

    No...they quit sending long long ago. Several years. With the paper you always knew where you stood to date. If you call them you don't get the same answer even if you call within days....and they're not real good about answering questions...at least clearly.

    Hubbs is 65 1/2 and hasn't received one however the next statement says...
    Because the annual statements are typically sent out about three months before a worker's birthday, those born in July and later won't be receiving one this year.

    So don't know. He's definitely over 60 so would have thought he'd be in this group.

    Also want to see where I stand myself

    Doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to it then as to getting one

    It says in the article:
    Green says the SSA "is working on an online option" so that all workers can download their statements. No specific date for that option has been set.
    Although the article was written April 7, 2011.

    Did you try this site? You have to set up an acct...................

    The United States Social Security Administration

    As Russ said, they quit mailing them couple years ago............and........as of March of this year(think it is) you have to have direct deposit set up or you get a 'credit card' thing to use for your benefit amt.

    I found the link to semi calculate. Works pretty good if you have an idea of what you'll make in the future...you all should check it out and play with it
