Hello, I hope someone can inform me of what this letter is. I open my mail at work (I am the boss) and I get a letter from the Socail Security Administration for a wage survey for the year of 2010. It was for me, but it had my name right and my social security number was off by one number. It has a huge sheet that is included where you fill out each month's gross wages. Does anyone have any information they could share?
The form asks for help in obtaining wage information for the employee attached (Me). This has a reference code on it. I'm wondering what this could be, again the SSN is off by 1 number (the last one).
Should I be worried? What could it be?

Its a Survey....
I am not 100% sure whether you should even fill this out .... I would contact the SSA - the only form they require an employer to report a wage on - is a W2 or like

It definitely IS a survey, I'm just worried why they want to know this information. Why would they be asking for 2009/2010/2011 gross wages, Cafeteria allowance, Garnishments, etc? I'm kinda freaked out that I have a levy or lien or am getting audited.
It has a reference number on it and it came w/ a pre stamped envelope, I'm a bit worried about it. Again, the weird thing is, the SSN on file is off by one number (the last).

easiest thing to do is call them -
Its probably just to update the geographical income.... or whatever lol ....

i wouldnt let it bother you over the weekend.
Just give them a call, once again - remember its just a survey....

I REALLY appreciate the response, however how can you be so certain? And furthermore, why would they be surveying me with all of these questions? Not just for kicks. Also, the SSN being off by one number concerns me. Does anyone else have experience with this?

I would assume this to be a scam unless you confirm otherwise. The SSN being wrong is a big concern.
I am a business consultant and never heard of such a letter from SSA.

i tried to google it and found nothing alike....

The number they gave me was to the SSN administration. I verified that on the web. Also when I call they say the office is closed. Here's what they're asking for:
2009/2010/2011 Gross wages paid in month - cafeteria plan deduction - child support garnishments - other.
Anyone else familiar with this information?
