RM 01340.001 General — Processing Incoming Earnings Requests

A. Introduction

Using the Generalized Earnings Statement System (GESS), SSA provides an On-Request Social Security Statement (OR) to individuals who request earnings, insured status and/or benefit estimate information. These requests are processed and electronically transmitted to the National Computer Center. The data are input into "the Statement System" to produce a Form SSA-7005-SM, Social Security Statement, or an SSA-7014-A, B, D, E, or F, Social Security Summary Statement of Earnings, that is mailed to the requester or processing center.

The "Statement System" was enhanced to provide SSA-initiated Social Security Statement) to “eligible individuals” beginning in fiscal year 1995. The SIPEBES data are entered electronically into "the Statement System” by the Office of Systems.
