social_security_personQ) I need a copy of my award letter, for my rental office, how do i get it.

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.

  1. I have had quite the run around with the SSA office in Omaha, NE. I waited for long periods of time on the phone. When I left a message, they don’t call back… Or when they say they someone will call back, they do not return your calls. When asking for information regarding my account they said it would take up to 90 days to get the info from the parent site. Apparently, they only go back so far due to digitizing the records, all paper copies are kept out of state. I requested an Benefits Planning Query and Next Scheduled Review/Diary Date and they had no idea what I was talking about. When asked where to file a complaint they had no idea where I could go. I also asked for a copy of all my records, they said it would cost me over $75.00. It was highly painful and degrading.
