Social Security recently announced a new online service that allows disability beneficiaries to electronically complete, sign, and submit the Work Activity Report for Wage Employment (Form SSA-821) and Self-Employment (Form SSA-820). Beneficiaries may use this online service as an alternative to completing a paper version of this form. To complete the form online, beneficiaries need a valid email address. Simply click on the web links below to find the online forms with instructions.
SSA-820 – Work Activity Report (Self-Employed Person) Provides Social Security with work activity information for self-employed individuals applying for or receiving disability benefits.
SSA-821 – Work Activity Report – Provides Social Security with work activity information for individuals applying for or receiving disability benefits.
This new online service is wonderful news for WIPA programs as it makes it much easier for disability beneficiaries to communicate important information about employment or self-employment to Social Security. We hope you will work closely with the beneficiaries you serve to inform them of this new service and support them to use it.
