My husband and I need a current SS benefits letter to rent Senior apartment.
A) To get a current Social Security benefits letter to rent a senior apartment, you can do the following:
- Request a benefit verification letter online. You can do this by creating a my Social Security account. Once you have created an account, you can instantly view, save, or print your official Benefit Verification Letter. It only takes a few minutes.
- Call the Social Security Administration (SSA). You can call the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) to request a benefit verification letter. The SSA will mail your letter within 10 business days.
- Visit your local Social Security office. You can visit your local Social Security office to request a benefit verification letter. The letter will be mailed to you within 10 business days.
Your benefit verification letter will show the following information:
- Your name
- Your Social Security number
- Your date of birth
- The type of benefits you receive
- The amount of benefits you receive
- The start date of your benefits
- The end date of your benefits (if applicable)
You will need to provide this information to the landlord of the senior apartment you are interested in renting.
Again to obtain a current Social Security benefits letter, you have a few different options. You can either request the letter online, by phone, or by visiting your local Social Security office in person.
If you choose to request the letter online, you can do so by creating an account on the Social Security Administration’s website. Once you have an account, you can request a benefits verification letter, which will provide information on your monthly benefit amount and eligibility status.
Alternatively, you can call the Social Security Administration’s toll-free number at 1-800-772-1213 and request a benefits verification letter over the phone. If you prefer to visit a Social Security office in person, you can use the Social Security Office Locator on the SSA website to find the nearest office and make an appointment.
Regardless of which option you choose, it’s a good idea to have your Social Security number and other identifying information handy, as well as any documentation that may be required to verify your identity and eligibility for benefits.
I applied for my benefits in early Feb, as I turned 62 in Mar. It is now May 19th, and yet I still have not rec’d any benefits.
My husband and I gained legal guardianship of our grand kids. Father died, mother incarcerated. How do we get their benefits?
