To import your Social Security past earnings record by uploading your XML earnings record from the Social Security Administration (SSA) site, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Social Security Administration website and create an account if you don't already have one
  2. Log in using your SSA user name and password
  3. Click the "Download Statement Data as an XML file" link to download your XML data
  4. Return to the import screen and click on the "Choose File" button and choose your file

Note that SSA is currently rolling out of a new format for their statements and some people are getting the new version while some still see the old version. The PDF and XML of the new statement differs significantly from the old version. We are working to get information from SSA about the new XML format so we can support it. For now, if your XML import does not work, please manually enter earnings or use the copy/paste method to import.
