Welcome to the site. I'mCustomer and will be helping you today.
The claim you want to make is creative, but won't be processed. A laundry had to sign for their own benefits, or empower a power of attorney to do so. A personal visit to a social security office is required.
Thanks for your question. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'mCustomer
