I am a bit puzzled by your understanding that the USG does not issue annual benefits statements, plus monthly statements.
- The San Antonio consulate official wasn't interested in my standard annual statements, which I showed them. He said he needed an "official letter," whatever that is.
--For Social Security, see http://www.ssa.gov/onlineservices/#a0=5
, where you can see that, online, you can
--Get your benefit verification letter (includes Medicare and SSI);
I can't get the social security letter online because I don't have a US mailing address. I have to get mine from the US Consulate in Guadalajara.
Perhaps your local US SSA office could even print out, on official letterhead, the verification leltter, perhaps even the American Citizens' Service office in the US Consulate (as in Guadalajara) could. Ask them!
- Yes, if that's what's required in Laredo, but I'd like to know if it is.
