How to Apostille a Social Security letter

We provide fast Apostille service for your Income and Benefits letter from the Social Security Administration (SSA).  If you’re planning to retire in another country, you may be asked to obtain an Apostille on this document in order to fulfill the requirements of the Visa.

You can either visit the closest social security office or you can obtain the letter from the SSA’s online website located here: .  Most people who contact us are already in another country.  We recommend that you mail the original letter to our office in Washington, D.C.  The processing time is 1-3 business day.  If you require your documents to be delivered to you in another country, there is an additional international shipping fee.

Please note that some Apostille Service companies will recommend to have this document notarized and Apostilled by the Secretary of State (Example: California Secretary of State Apostille) .  The Social Security Letter is a Federal document and must be authenticated by the Secretary of the District of Columbia in Washington, D.C.

If the country requesting your Social Security Income and Benefits Letter is not a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, then your documents may require further authentication through the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C. and legalization through the Embassy / Consulate office. Our Staff in D.C. can handle your Department of State and legalization requests quickly.

Apostilles can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the Apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you!
