Customer Question
My wife and I...

My wife and I need letters from S.S. saying that we will be receiving benefits during 2018 (we are applying for residence in a affordable rent facility).

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

My wife and I have been receiving Social Security for years now and that shows on our Credit Union statements, but the facility that we are living in now has changed hands and wants benefit letters for 2018.

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?

Nothing that seems relevant....

What you are referring to is a "benefits statement" that the SS can provide to you and that shows what your benefits are. You can request this by going to any SS office. However, I strongly suggest, so that you do not have to wait for along time, that you go to the SS office and make an appointment to come back at a specific time to pick up your letters.
