SSA’s traditional policy was to mail such a statement annually to all wage earners over age 25 who are not drawing benefits; in 2010, 155 million such statements were sent at a cost of $65 million. In 2012, the SSA launched the mySocialSecurity feature on its website, which provides those estimates on request among other services, seeking to save money by cutting back on mailings by encouraging people to use that feature instead.
However, since then the agency has faced pressure to maintain paper services from Congress on grounds that some members of the public do not have regular Internet access or do not want to have online accounts with the agency.
