Social Security puts you in control. Over the years, we have invested in technology that lets the public access many of our services online and save a trip to a Social Security office. We want to remind your clients that if they ever have to present proof of income or benefits — or show that they are not receiving benefits — it’s easy to get a benefit verification letter online.

Your clients can get a benefit verification letter instantly with a my Social Security account at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount. It takes only a few minutes to create an account.

The most common reason for needing a benefit verification letter is for proof of income when applying for a loan or mortgage. However, your clients may also need a benefit verification letter as proof of:

  • Income to qualify for assisted housing or other state or local benefits;
  • Current Medicare health insurance coverage;
  • Retirement status;
  • Disability;
  • Age; or
  • A pending benefits application with Social Security.
