All SSA forms are FREE but there may be a charge for the information.
Not all forms are listed. If you can’t find the form you need, or you need help completing a form, please call the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 or contact your local Social Security office and they will help you.
If you download, print and complete a paper form, please mail or take it to your
local Social Security office or the office that requested it from you.
A more economical method would be to directly contact your previous employers.
Call or email the HR or payroll departments of your previous employers.
Review your past tax records, W2 or 1099 forms, or paystubs
Keep a record of this information to supply to future prospective employers.
You will need to provide information such as your name, address, Social Security Number, and the years for which you’d like a search on your employment.
Your State Unemployment Office may also be able to help
State unemployment agencies can often release employment histories for individuals, as long as they worked for in-state employers.
The form varies by state, but it’s often called a Self-Request for Records, and you can request back as far as ten years.
The best part is the request is free.
We contact previous employers for employment verification of the information provided by the applicants.
Many employers verify employment through their Human Resources Departments. Other employers make use of third-party verification services that usually charge a fee for verifying the information requested.
We always get your explicit approval before we incur any such charges.
We also offer education, licensing and all other forms of verifications.
