Find Someone’s SSN Request Form
A Social Security number (SSN) is widely used to prove one’s identity, so in the event a relative has passed away, the number can usually be found quite quickly in the deceased’s personal papers. If you don’t have access to the deceased’s personal belongings, you can get the correct Social Security number from the Social Security Administration, or SSA.
Finding a Social Security Number Yourself
If a relative has passed away, there are many places you can find their social security number. For starters, if you have access to your relative’s personal belongings, look through his wallet and personal papers for his Social Security card. You can also find the Social Security number on a tax form such as a W-2 or SSA-1099 or a Social Security benefits statement. Pay stubs generally include a person’s Social Security number, as do health care records and life insurance policies. You can also check your relative’s driver’s license – 29 states use the SSN as the driver’s license number or show it on the license. If your relative served in the military, you should be able to find the Social Security number in those documents as well.
If you can’t find the Social Security number in any of these places, contact the funeral director responsible for your relative’s funeral. Funeral directors include the deceased’s Social Security number on the Statement of Death they file with the federal government. The funeral director normally provides a copy of the Statement of Death to close relatives of the deceased, like a spouse or child.
If these methods fail, contact your local SSA office to inquire about getting the relative’s Social Security number.
