Where can I get a Social Security Income and Benefits Letter?
The Social Security Administration is the authority that issues a Social Security Benefits and Income Statement. This is an official document issued by the United States Federal Government. When this document is requested by a foreign country – a member of the Hague Apostille Convention it needs to be authenticated with an apostille. The apostilled Social Security Income and Benefits letter is required to obtain a long-term retirement/residency visa in a foreign country.
How can I obtain a Social Security Income and Benefits Statement Letter?
You should start by contacting your local Social Security Administration office and informing them that you need the Social Security Income and Benefits Statement letter signed by the Acting Commissioner of the Social Security Administration. Normally, the Social Security Income and Benefits Letter endorsed with a facsimile of the signature of the Acting Commissioner is sufficient for processing.
Important! If your letter is missing the signature of the Acting Commissioner of the Social Security Administration, it will not be accepted for apostille processing!
