SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS

Marie,

  This came in from a South Carolina genealogy and history site.  It was so
good I thought I would share it with my Sellers cousins!

p.s. Sorry I do not have more Sellers info to share, but I copy the mail
always in hope of finding something!

======================================================================
Today I received a reply to my request for a copy of an individuals social
security application.

This info is wonderful.  It gives:  name, address, place of employment,
age,
birth date, birth place, father, mother, sex, color, date and signature.

To order send a letter requesting "a photo copy" of the persons SS5 (social
security application).  Give what info you have.  Name, Social Security #
and
etc.

Send a check for $7.00, $16.00 if you don't have the social security
number.

Mail to:

Social Security Administration
Freedom of Information Officer
4-H-8 Annex Bldg.
6401 security Blvd.
Baltimore, MD 21235

If you don't have the persons social security number go to

http://www.Ancestry.Com

and check the Social Security Death Index FOR FREE.

Give it a try, I learned alot from my request.

Hi,

The SSDI has the place of residence listed for those people
who are on the
list. It doesn't necessarily mean they died there. Case in
point:

I had found a man who was listed as passed away, and his
place of residence
was WaKeeney, Trego, KS. I tried calling the funeral home
there, and they
didn't handle the arrangements. LUCKILY, a lady I had
corresponded with
checked the newspaper, and found that he actually passed
away in Denver,
Colorado. So DON'T take the word of the SSDI when someone
passes away. Check
with funeral homes and cemeteries where they lived and MAKE
SURE!
ciao,
Ron

Apparently the Social Security Department lists wherever the
social security
check goes as the place of death.  I handled all my 95 year
old fathers
finances.  We had a joint checking account from which I paid
the bills, and
the SS check was a direct deposit into that account and the
statements came
to my house.  Imagine my surprise when I looked at my
father's information as
shown on the SSDI and found they show him as dying in the
town (and county)
in which I live.  There is nothing on the internet index
that gives a clue
that he really died 45 miles from where I live and in a
completely different
county.  I attached a Post-em to the SSDI telling what city
and county he
died in so years from now, anyone looking will know where to
get the correct
death information.
