Benefit Verification Letters Now Easier To Access Through Social Security

If you are told you need a Benefits Verification letter for a loan or assistance program application, Social Security indicates those are now easier to get access to.


According to Jack Myers with Social Security, there are many different names a Benefits Verification letter may be given. He adds there are also many different scenarios a person might need one of these for.



There are several different ways a person can access their benefits verification letter. Myers says calling the '800-number' for Social Security is a common one for the public but also they are available at ssa.gov/myaccount, and an electronic version can be accessed.



Myers points out, Social Security has taken steps to standardize the benefit verification so individuals receive those in the same type of letter no matter how it's been requested. Additionally, individuals can request a letter showing they don't receive benefits.
