When do you need to provide proof of age?
You must submit proof of age when age is a factor in determining benefit rights. For example:
Age of child for child's insurance benefits (see Chapter 3 for age requirement);
Age 62 and over for retirement or dependent's insurance benefits;
Age of deceased worker when it affects the benefit computation or insured status; or
Age of disabled worker for disability insurance benefits.
