Hi, Joyce.

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

I am so sorry to hear about your mom's condition.

If your mom cannot remember the name of the company she worked for, just write in "don't know." Include an explanation that it was a handbag factory in Hoboken, NJ, the company moved to NY, and she worked for the company in NY. Also include an explanation of your mom's acute MDS and her other medical ailments which are affecting her ability to remember the information.

You can also call Social Security at 1-***-***-**** and explain the situation to them for further guidance.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,
