Hi,

In order to write to Social Security, you should have the name of the person you are looking for, their birth date, their death date, and their Social Security Number. You should try to find the Death Date first by writing for the Death Certificate at the Vital Records Dept in Burbank, CA.

Remember, Social Security didn't start till 1965 so any one who died prior to 1965 won't have a Social Security Number.

Also, here is the form you should use for Social Security.

Social security Records are available from 1963 onwards and a letter can be printed off the column alongside the name of the deceased under the SS-5 column in the Social security Death Index. Peter
