Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No. He does not have an email account. When I tried to get the information from social security on line it reads that I can not get the SS statement on line. since dad do not have an email account How do I get the information. Can I use my email address as his as I have power of attorney for him without committing fraud etc?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I do not want to speak with you and pay an additional fee. I will go to social security office directly and find out what I need to do.

I didn't send you the phone call request, that was something that the Site sends out automatically. The Professionals on this Site are not employees of the Site so we have no control over what they send out in their communications. No need for a phone call.

That said, you have two options. One is to take your Power of Attorney down to the local Social Security Office and request that they print out a copy of his SS letter stating what he receives monthly. The other option is to set up an online account in his name. Since you have his SS number you can set up the account as if you were him. You can use your email address, but just be aware that if you also have an account in your name, it may only allow one account per email address. This is the link to set up an online account: https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/

Once you set up the account, you can print his statement, or any other record that you need from his account from his account.

Please feel free to ask for clarification if needed. If none is needed, then if you could reply to this message and let me know that I have covered your question, then the Site will give me credit for working with you today. Thank you

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
