Good afternoon Gerhard,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

If you have misplaced your Award letter---also known as a proof of income letter, you may get one by going to your local Social Security office and they will get it for you, or you may call social security at 1-800-772-1213 and they can mail you one if you can wait about 10 days.

Finally, you may order one on line at this Social Security site. Click the link at the bottom right of this page which reads START, and follow the instructions.:

You may reply back to me using the Continue the Conversation or Reply to Expert link and I will be happy to continue to assist you until I am able to address your concerns, to your satisfaction.

I wish you the best in 2013,
