How to Get a Duplicate SSI Tax Form Sent

The Social Security Administration (SSA) mails the tax form SSA-1099 to benefit recipients each January. You will receive an SSA-1042S if you are a nonresident alien. If you did not receive your tax form, or if it's lost or illegible, request a duplicate SSI tax form. You may also request a tax form for a deceased person. Fill out an online form on the SSA's website to request the replacement document. Expect the duplicate copy to arrive in about 10 days.

Step 1

Go to the main website of the Social Security Administration. Click on “SSI” from the tab at the top menu.

Step 2

Click on “Site Map” at the bottom of the Web page under the heading “Organizational Information.”

Step 3

Click on “F” from the alphabet menu. Click on “Forms.”

Step 4

Scroll down until you see the link labeled “Request a form SSA-1099/1042 (Benefit Statement) for tax or other purposes.” Click on this link.

Step 5

Scroll to the bottom of the Web page and select the appropriate link to request a replacement tax form for yourself or for a deceased person.

Step 6

Follow the onscreen prompts to request a replacement SSA-1099. Select a reason for why you need a new form from the pull-down menu. Provide the Social Security number, full name and date of birth. (reference 6)

    Tips

  • Call the SSA at 800-772-1213 to report a change of address and request a replacement tax form.
  • Call the SSA or visit your local office if you need a tax form from an earlier year.
  • If you need a replacement document sooner than 10 days, visit your local office.
