Hi,

...

What they will want is what's called the Social Security award letter (showing how much you receive)

...

You can get that here: https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/

...

If you receive benefits or have Medicare, you can: (I'll underline the pertinent part)

  • Request a replacement Social Security card if you meet certain requirements;
  • Get your benefit verification letter;
  • Check your benefit and payment information and your earnings record;
  • Change your address and phone number;
  • Start or change direct deposit of your benefit payment;
  • Get a replacement Medicare card; and
  • Get a replacement SSA-1099 or SSA-1042S for tax season.

How can I get a benefit verification letter?

...

If you need proof you get Social Security benefits, Supplemental Security (SSI) Income or Medicare, you can request a benefit verification letter online by using your my Social Security account. This letter is sometimes called a "budget letter," a "benefits letter," a "proof of income letter," or a "proof of award letter."

...

You can also request proof that you have never received Social Security benefits or Supplemental Security Income or proof that you have applied for benefits.

...

To set up or use your account to get a benefit verification letter, go to Sign In Or Create An Account.
...
You cannot request a benefit verification letter online for another person, such as a spouse or child.

...

If you can’t or don’t want to use your online account, or you need a letter for someone other than yourself, you can call us at 1-***-***-**** (TTY 1-***-***-****), Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Please let me know if you have any questions at all.

If this HAS helped, and you DON’T have other questions … I'd appreciate a positive rating (using the faces or stars on your screen, and then clicking “submit")

JustAnswer will not credit me for the work unless you do.

Thank you!
