Hi ... My name's Lane ... I can help here.

...

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."

...

Here's the web site where you can go, set up your account, and print the award letter immediately.
