Do you have any of her tax information such as her Social Security Statement of benefits received in 2015?Was she collecting her spousal benefit or a benefit based upon her own earnings record?Do you have her Power of Attorney?If so you can get your father's Social Security Number from your local Social Security office.If your father has died, his death certificate should have his Social Security Number listed and you can obtain a copy of that from the city or town where he died.
