Form SSA-7050-F4, Request for Social Security Earnings Information is a form used for requesting detailed information about your earnings that affect your Social Security benefits and retirement amount. This information is provided by the Social Security Administration (SSA). The latest version of the form - also known as the SSA Form 7050-F4 - was issued in March 2019. All previous editions of the document are obsolete. Form SSA-7008, Request for Correction of Earnings Record is a related form used by the SSA to correct earnings records when a discrepancy appears.
The SSA uses the information you provide in this form to identify proper records and to send you the requested information. Completion of the document is voluntarily, but if you do not furnish all the necessary information, the SSA will not be able to process your request. One form is applicable for one Social Security number (SSN) only. The SSA charges a $91 fee to provide information unrelated to the administration of the programs. They may certify the itemized earnings information and the yearly totals of earnings for an additional $34 fee.
You may obtain the information about someone else's earnings if you are a natural, adoptive parent or a legal guardian of this person. You also have a right to request earnings information from the file of a deceased person if you are a surviving spouse, parent or child, legal representative of the estate, or individual with a material interest. In this case, you need to submit documents that prove your relationship.
