Social Security Benefits Letter basics

A Social Security Benefits Letter helps you learn what your Social Security awards will be, which will be useful as you are planning for retirement.

How do I get a Social Security Benefits Letter?

Making a Social Security Benefits Letter online is simple. Just answer a few questions and Rocket Lawyer will build your document for you. Consider these questions beforehand to make the process speedier:

  • What are your total earnings for last year and this year?
  • At what age do you plan to retire?
  • What do you estimate your average future annual earnings to be?

If you don't have all of the details you need, you can skip questions and save your document for later.

Why would I get a letter from Social Security?

Typically, you will receive a letter from Social Security if you need to be aware of anything or take action regarding your claim, benefit status, or benefit amount. The Social Security Administration will give prior notice before making any changes to your benefit or eligibility.

How often do you get a Social Security award letter?

A Social Security award letter is received when your benefits have been approved. Once it has been approved, an award letter will be received within approximately three months of your application.

How can I check my Social Security benefits online?

You may check your Social Security benefits online through the my Social Security portal.
