Normally, a student claimant will receive an SSA-1372-BK-FC from the office processing
his or her claim in initial claims cases, or directly from SSA in the case of a child
beneficiary about to reach age 18.
The student will complete the form following the directions on the form and return
it to an FBU. That office will review the completed SSA-1372-BK-FC. If it appears
that the student meets all the requirements for entitlement to student benefits, the
FBU will contact the school and verify the correctness of the information shown on
the statements of the student and school official.
The FBU will annotate the SSA-1372-BK-FC “Verified by telephone (or personal contact),”
initial and date the annotation.
