It is the beginning of a fresh, new year—time to wash our hands of 2020 and all its misfortunes. Most people spend the first week of a new year deciding on what their New Years’ resolution is and how they plan to implement it into their life. But don’t forget! If you are currently employed and receiving SSI or SSDI, one of the most important tasks to accomplish within the first six days of each month is reporting your wages.
It is vital to report your gross wages within this time to prevent underpayments or over payments, which will end up being deducted from your benefits when you least expect it. It is up to you or your representative payee to remember to take care of this duty.
Be sure to have a copy of your paycheck stub or your direct deposit information and do one of the following:
• Call or visit your local Social Security Office.
• Securely email your wage information to your Employment Network.
• Create an account with my Social Security online wage reporting tool.
