Q) Thanks to Carlisles fine fine post office, I just received a shredded year end statement from social security. It’s so shredded I can’t read any of the info, it’s in a hundred pieces. If it’s the statement telling me next years amount, or this years total payout, I’ll Ned another one for my taxes to be prepared, or just to see what is ahead for this upcoming year. How do I get another one sent, not exactly sure what it even was, but I’d like another one. How do I get it.
