After a three-year hiatus, Uncle Sam will resume mailing Social Security statements this fall. The documents—which show working people how much Social Security income they can expect to receive when they retire—used to be mailed every year.
In 2011, the Social Security Administration (SSA) moved the statements to the Web. But only about 6% of eligible citizens signed up for the online service. Under the SSA’s new plan, workers will receive statements every five years from ages 25 to 60.
