Q) I would like a letter stating my social security benefits.
A) The benefit verification letter shows your monthly benefit amount. You can get your benefit verification letter online, or request it by telephone. It is often used to:
Apply for a loan;
Give to a landlord;
Obtain housing assistance, or other state or local benefits;
Verify Medicare health insurance coverage; or
Verify retirement status, disability, or age.
The SSA-1099 shows your annual income for income tax purposes. We mail the SSA-1099 by January 31 each year. You can request an SSA-1099 online, or you can call SSA at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, or visit a local office.
