Get Proof of Your Social Security or Medicare Benefits

Posted by Medicare Made Clear

benefit verification letterDo you need proof you have Medicare or receive Social Security benefits? Or, maybe you need proof you aren’t receiving any benefits at all. Request a Benefit Verification Letter to get the proof you need for either situation. You can select the information you want included in, or left out of, your benefit verification letter.

A Benefit Verification Letter is an official letter from the Social Security Administration that proves the following information:

  • Income when you apply for a loan or mortgage
  • Income for assisted housing or other state or local benefits
  • Current Medicare health insurance coverage
  • Retirement status
  • Disability
  • Age

If you applied for benefits but have not received an answer yet, you can request a Benefit Verification Letter that shows your claim is still pending.

Request your benefits verification letter online by signing in at my Social Security. If you prefer to request your letter by phone, you can call the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778), Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
