An Independent View of Social Security
How do you prove your age?
The following types of evidence, established or recorded before your fifth birthday, are acceptable in proving your age:
A public record of your birth; or
A religious record of your age that shows your date of birth.
If such a document is unavailable, you must submit another document or documents that may serve as the basis for a determination of your date of birth. The evidence must be confirmed by other evidence or by information contained in our records.
