Social Security Verification of Income

Posted on: April 17th, 2015 by Christa Landram No Comments

Social Security Verification of Income

Many affordable housing property managers have found that obtaining third-party verification for Social Security income has become even more challenging. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has stopped sending verification letters to third parties (i.e., property managers, onsite staff, management, etc.).
The potential residents and recipients of the award must provide documentation. It is important to note that bank statements are not sufficient since those reflect net and you must use gross income. The SSA office has issued the following guidance: “You can request a benefit verification letter online by using your ‘my Social Security account.’ This letter is sometimes called a ‘budget letter,’ a ‘benefits letter,’ a “proof of income letter,” or a “proof of award letter.”

If you have any questions, you can call the Social Security office at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778), Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. throughout the U.S.
