A. Procedure

1. General

Use an SSA-1200 to request FBU development of evidence of age. Use the information in the file and that obtained in the interview with the claimant to complete the form.

The request may be either mailed or faxed (telefax number 011-30-210-646-9885) to the FBU.

If the request is to be mailed, prepare (type or block print clearly) an original and one copy of the form for forwarding to the FBU. Keep a copy in file as a control. If the request is to be faxed, only one copy is needed.

Complete the form as follows:
