The daughter should receive a letter from the SSA with explanation.

That letter provides all required information.
in your reply are u saying that she needs to go there to the embassy to get an answer?

There is no need to visit an embassy. But contacting the SSA representative is recommended.

But as that is an issue where a personal information involved - the SSA will only discuss that issue with her personally OR with her legal representative.
She may call the SSA representative or write a letter requesting specific information or sending documents.
