The fastest and (soon only) way to obtain verification of SSI/SSDI benefits

I have often sent my clients to the local Vallejo Social Security field office to obtain a benefit verification letter.  It is no longer necessary to go in person to obtain a letter and in fact, by October 2014, it will no longer be possible to obtain it in person.  One can access this information and obtain a statement immediately by going  online and creating an online account at My Social Security.

It is a shame that the local office will no longer be providing letters to people who come in.  It disadvantages those people who are not computer literate.  For those people in that situation, Social Security will continue to take requests by telephone.

As a result of this policy, I will now help my clients set up an online account so that they may access their information after they have been awarded benefits.
