As part of the Foreign Enforcement Program, the Social Security Administration (SSA)has started sending out their Report to the U.S. Social Security Administration form, which serves as their “Proof of Life” to the mailing addresses on record with SSA.  


If you meet any of the conditions below, you are required to comply with this requirement this year:


      Beneficiary with a representative payee or

      Beneficiary aged 90 and over or

      The terminal digits of your SSN ends in 00 – 49


If you have not yet received your form, we recommend that you continue checking at the Post Office.   


As soon as you receive the form, please answer the questions applicable to you and sign it.  Before mailing the form to the SSA, please make a copy for your records and mail the form with your original signature to the following address:


Social Security Administration

Wilkes Barre Data Operations Center

1150 E. Mountain Dr.

Room 341

Attention: FEQ Analyst, FEQ Forms 7161-7162

Wilkes Barre, PA 18702-7997


Please note that at this time you can only submit the original form with the bar code sent by the SSA.  It is not possible for you to request a blank form at the Federal Benefits Unit to comply with this process.
