Social Security starts providing online statements


WASHINGTON (AP) — The Social Security Administration is now providing workers with online statements of the estimated benefits they will get when they retire, replacing the paper ones the agency used to mail out.

Until last year, the agency mailed out yearly statements that told you how much your benefits would be if you retired at age 62, 66 or 70. Social Security stopped mailing the paper statements to save an estimated $70 million a year.

This year, the agency resumed mailing them to people once they reach 60, but younger workers were left out.

The agency announced Tuesday that workers can now go online, to www.ssa.gov
