Thanks to updates on Social Security's website, you can obtain your "Social Security Statement" online utilizing the "my Social Security online account. You will:
Use a "my Social Security" online account to get your Social Security Statement, to review:
Estimates of your retirement, disability, and survivors benefits;
Your earnings record; and
The estimated Social Security and Medicare taxes you’ve paid.
To do so, SSA says "To create an account, you must provide some personal information about yourself and give us answers to some questions that only you are likely to know. Next, you create a username and password that you will use to access your online account. This process protects you and keeps your personal Social Security information private."
To create the account, go to: https://secure.ssa.gov/RIL/SiView.do
When you are done, at the top of page two you will be able to see if you are eligible.
