I have encountered a difference of opinion on how/when one verifies his or
her age for Social Security purposes.
When I turned 65 I did not have to show any proof of age and I recall - I'm
pretty sure - that my Dad took a copy of my birth certificate with him when
he signed me up for a SS card (I didn't go with him).
However, a number of people have told me that when they retired, they had to
show proof of age.
So I'm confused about what they require - and what it might say on the
application that shows whether or not the age was verified at the time the
card was applied for.
Is there anyone out there who knows this process?
