Answer: If you are age 18 or older, you may get your Social Security Statement conveniently online at any time after creating an account at www.socialse- The Statement provides estimates for retirement, disability and survivors benefits, as well as a way to determine whether your earnings are accurately posted to your Social Secu- rity record. Social Security sends paper Social Security State- ments in the mail only to people age 60 and older and, beginning July 2012, to workers the year they turn 25. If this applies to you, you should receive your Statement about two to three months before your birthday. Also, you can get an instant, personalized estimate of your future retirement benefit using our online Retirement Estimator at www.socialsecurity, gov/ estimator. Question: My child, who gets Social Security, will be attending his last year of high school in the fall. He turns 19 in a few months. Do I need to fill out a form for his benefits to continue? Answer: Yes. You should receive a form, SSA-1372- BK, in the mail about three months before your son's birthday. Your son needs to complete the form and take it to his school's office for certification. Then, you need to return page two and the certified page three back to Social Security for processing. If you can't find the form we mailed to you, you can find it online at the following address www. ficials/ssa1372.pdf. Question: My neighbor, who is retired, told me that the income he receives from his part-time job at the local nursery gives him an in- crease in his Social Security benefits. Is that right? Answer: Retirees who return to work after they start receiving benefits may be able to receive a higher benefit based on those earn- ings. This is because Social Security automatically re-computes the retirement benefit after crediting the additional earnings to the individual's earnings record. Question: I plan to retire soon. When are Social Secu- rity benefits paid? Answer: Social Secu- rity benefits are paid each month. Generally, new retir- ees receive their benefits on either the second, third, or fourth Wednesday of each month, depending on the day in the month the retiree was born. If you receive benefits as a spouse, your benefit payment date will be determined by your spouse's birth date. Question: I get Social Se- curity because of a disabil- ity. How often will my case be reviewed to determine if I'm still eligible? Answer: How often we re- view your medical condition depends on how severe it is and the likelihood it will improve. Your award notice tells you when you can ex- pect your first review using the following terminology: • Medical improvement expected - If your condi- tion is expected to improve within a specific time, your first review will be six to 18 months after you started get- ting disability benefits. • Medical improvement possible - If improvement in your medical condition is possible, your case will be reviewed about every three years. • Medical improvement not expected - If your medi- cal condition is unlikely to improve, your case will be reviewed about once every five to seven years. : 1 : 18 bottles:: : II Caramel Apple i : .......................................................................................
