Getting Social Security Verification

Need to verify your Social Security benefit amount?

There are a number of reasons you may need written verification of your Social Security benefit amount. You may need to provide it to an energy assistance program or for subsidized housing. Perhaps you are ready to make a major purchase with a loan you want to secure from a bank or social institution. Or maybe you are applying for state benefits or moving into a new apartment or home.
Whatever your reason, if you need verification of income from Social Security, obtaining it is easy and convenient now. You can go to http://www.socialsecurity.gov/. Look in the LEFT column under “TOP
SERVICES”, open the “SERVICES FOR PEOPLE CURRENTLY RECEIVING BENEFITS” section, and select “REQUEST A PROOF OF INCOME LETTER”. Or you can click any of the links I have provided. You must enter some information including your mailing address and in about 10 days, you will receive a letter that verifies your Social Security benefit information.
Before you fill out the information, you may want to go to this website first: www.socialsecurity.gov/beve. It will tell you the information to gather, what the information can be used for and what their rules are on releasing personal information.

If you don’t have time to wait 10 days, you can call them at
1-800-772-1213(TTY 1-800-325-0778) or visit your local Social Security office.

You can use this letter for any reason that requires proof of your income. Additionally, the letter is an official document that verifies your Medicare coverage, retirement or disability status, and your age.
