Benefit Verification Letter Law and Legal Definition

Benefit Verification Letter is an official letter from the Social Security that verifies the amount an individual receives each month in Social Security benefits and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments. These letters are ordinarily issued on the request of a person receiving benefits or his/her authorized representative.

Such letters are sent to persons receiving both retirement and disability benefits, including the Supplemental Security Income payments. The letter informs the disabled individual that they have been approved for benefits, and also lets them know the amount that would arrive in the bank account or mailbox of the disabled person. This type of letter is sent out to those who are receiving both retirement and disability benefits, including the Supplemental Security Income payments.
