What’s your social security balance?
To get a free statement of the total balance in your Social Security account, call your local Social Security Administration (SSA) office or (800) 234-5772 and ask for a Personal Earnings and Benefit Estimate Statement (PEBS) request form. A PEBS gives you yearly details of your earnings and Social Security contributions. It also shows how much you can expect when you retire or if you’re suddenly disabled, and how much your spouse would collect if you died. It’s worth sending in a PEBS request form every few years since the SSA won’t correct errors more than three years, three months, and 15 days old. There is no fee for this service.
