Good morning Cuthbert,
I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
You will need to get a copy of your social security statement which will show that you are not being paid any social security retirement benefits at the present time.
You will need to contact the US Consulate in your country and they work in conjunction with eh US social security administration and they can get you the documentation that you need to show that you are not receiving social security benefits.
