"How Far Back Does Social Security Check Your Bank Account"
When it comes to the Social Security benefits you receive, the federal government is very thorough in its investigation of your financial history. This includes looking at your bank accounts for the past several years. How far back does Social Security check your bank account? The answer depends on whether you are receiving benefits from them or applying for them.
If you are already receiving benefits from Social Security and have been for some time, then they will likely only look back about three years into your account history. This is to make sure that everything looks as expected and there has not been any sudden change in income or assets that could signal a potential fraud situation. However, if you are applying for Social Security benefits for the first time then they may look further back into your banking history – up to 10 years – to ensure that all information provided on application forms is accurate and verifiable.
