SSA Discontinues Paper Statements

January 31, 2017

On January 9, 2017, the Deputy Commissioner of the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Office of Communications released a blog detailing recent changes in SSA services.  In a cost-saving step, SSA will mail fewer paper Social Security Statements.  Paper statements will only be sent to people age 60 and over, who are not getting benefits, and do not have a my Social Security account.  Per the Deputy Commissioner, this will reduce costs of processing and mailing paper statements by $11.3 million in FY 2017.
