US citizens routinely receive statements from the US Social Security Administration (SSA) with explanations of their benefits. If an SSA Letter is requested by a foreign country, it requires to be apostilled. This is necessary if you are partially or fully employed in another country, own a business or property abroad, or intend to spend all or a part of your retirement outside of the United States. To start the process, you should contact your local Social Security office and ask them to issue you a Social Security Letter, or order a copy online at

Depending on your circumstances you may be asked to obtain an apostille on an SSA Benefit Verification Letter or a Certificate of Coverage. Social Security Benefit Verification Letter (also called Proof of Income Letter) is usually required if you plan to retire in a foreign country and continue receiving your US Social Security benefits, including Medicare. It is also a commonly required document for a long-term visa or a residency permit application. 

If you divide your life between the United States and another country, you may need to provide an apostilled SSA Certificate of Coverage to avoid paying double social security taxes. For example, if you work for a US company and manage its branch or a representative office in a different country, you will be required to submit an apostilled letter of SSA Certificate of Coverage to get an exemption from paying social security taxes in that country.  

Usually, an apostilled SSA Letter is requested before its addressee leaves the United States. However, in some cases, a Social Security Letter is requested after a person has already left the USA. In this case, you can mail your Social Security Letter for an apostille processing and we will ship it back to you when your document is ready. International shipping rates apply in this case. 

Georgia Apostille can obtain an apostille on official letters issued by the United States Social Security Administration. Since a Social Security Letter is a federally issued document, only the United States Secretary of State can apostille it. If a country of your destination is a signee to the Hague Apostille Treaty, your Social Security Letter will only require an apostille issued by the US Secretary of State. If your document will be used in a country that is not a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, it will require a different authentication process which includes authentication by the US Department of State and legalization at the Embassy/Consulate.
