RM 01310.035 Social Security Statement History File Query
The Statement History File is an electronic file about each SSN Holder that indicates:
If and when we sent an on-request or automatically issued Statement to the individual;
The individual's preferred language for the Statement,
If the individual has asked to be excluded from future annual mailing, and
If OCO manual handling of a processing condition is currently in progress.
FO and TSC personnel can query this file online for status. They can also update the information regarding preferred language and exclusion from the mailings in response to SSN holders' requests.
