Writing a letter to the Social Security Administration

When you find your ancestors in the Social Security Death Index (also known as the Death Master File), you may want a copy of your ancestor's original Social Security application. This application has valuable additional information and can serve as documentation for your own records. The Social Security Administration makes copies of the original Social Security application form (the SS-5) available to third parties who request information on a deceased individual.

The application form (SS-5) contains the following information:
•Full name
•Full name at birth (including maiden name)
•Present mailing address
•Age at last birthday
•Date of birth
•Place of birth (City, county, state)
•Father's full name "regardless of whether living or dead"
•Mother's full name, including maiden name, "regardless of whether living or dead"
•Sex and race
•Ever applied for SS number/Railroad Retirement before? Yes/No
•Current employer's name and address
•Date signed
•Applicant's signature

A standard letter to the Social Security Administration is available with the search results on the Social Security Death Index. This letter may be printed and mailed to the Social Security Administration to request a copy of your ancestor's SS-5 form. The Social Security Administration now charges $27.00 for each individual copy (an abbreviated NUMIDENT printout is available for $16.00).
