Access to Benefit Verification Letters

September 3, 2014

The Social Security Administration recently announced that local Social Security offices would continue to provide benefit verification letters until further notice. Providing services when and where the public needs them remains central to Social Security’s efforts, while continuing to encourage federal, state, and local agencies to take advantage of Social Security’s data exchange programs that can serve customers more efficiently and effectively.

Over the last few years, Social Security has invested in technology that allows most government agencies and many other organizations to verify their clients’ Social Security benefits electronically without requiring them to visit a local Social Security office, however, they now recognize that some members of the public require in-person assistance and they will continue to provide that assistance if needed.

Members of the public with Internet access can obtain benefit verification information by creating a my Social Security account at http://www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.
