I'm new to this, so please bear with me.
Will I need an "earnings statement" from my employer when I finally retire and apply for social security benefits? :confused:

Same here.

I completed a simple online application and in a few days, I got confirmation of my benefits in the mail.

Thanks, everyone! :) That's a load off my mind. One less thing to worry about. I'd heard someone at work who's retiring soon, warn that the company had screwed up her earnings record/statement. I'll have to talk to her about it.

Employers report your earnings and SS with-held to the gov't.

Now, if the employer made mistakes, that's an entirely different matter..
