Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

Only the social security administration has access to our social security records. However, there are many places that your dad used his number social security number.

1. Look on his last year's tax return--state or federal and it will be there.
2. Contact his bank because every bank account you have has your social security number attached to it.
3. Every credit card he had would have had an application and that application needed his social security card so that he could apply for credit.
4. If he rented an apartment or home, chances are good that he provided a written document to the landlord before he rented with his social security number so that they could run a credit check on him.
5. Colleges require that you provide your social security number, and they would have that information on file.
6. Any employer that he worked for since 1936 would have a record of his social security number.

7. Even the military can provide you with a number if you can provide basic information about the service member which is retrievable from his birth certificate, and even his death certificate.

8. Finally, for numbers of persons deceased,keep in mind that if the person has died, virtually every death certificate issued in the US over the past 40 years has the social security number of the deceased entered on the document.
