AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

How can I get a copy of my award letter from Social Security?

En español | To get a copy of your award letter (the original official statement from the Social Security Administration that it will pay you a benefit, and how much), call the agency directly at 1-800-772-1213 or visit your local Social Security office. You can go online to request a "proof of income letter," which you can use to document your Social Security benefits for such things as mortgage applications.
