How to Request a Job History Summary
When will I need a job history summary from the SSA?
A job history summary can be a very valuable document. A job history summary is available from the Social Security Administration and is essentially a detailed account of your total employment history. This summary includes information such as periods of employment, name and address information for employers, and even earnings information with yearly total earnings that can be certified. Completion of your request can take up to 4 months from the date of submission, which is why it is a good idea to prepare ahead of time for those events that may require it.
The Request for Social Security Earnings Information form is required in order to receive a job history summary. The form contains a very useful fee's chart that outlines the costs associated with your request, depending on the number of years you are requesting. The costs can grow to be quite high depending on how many years are needed, and it may be a good idea to consult a lawyer to determine how many years would best suit your needs. You may request your own earnings, the earnings of another person, with permission, or even the earnings of someone who is no longer living in certain circumstances.
