Box 2a is missing from my ssa-1099

A Social Security benefits statement Form SSA-1099 does not have a box 2a.  You are in the incorrect section of the program for entering SS benefits.  Delete any information you entered on the Form 1099-R.

  • Click on Federal Taxes (Personal using Home and Business)
  • Click on Wages and Income (Personal Income using Home and Business)
  • Click on I'll choose what I work on (if shown)
  • Scroll down to Retirement Plans and Social Security
  • On Social Security (SSA-1099, RRB-1099), click the start or update button
