Our goal is to obtain parents' names, but SS has recently placed a damper on our research. The names will be redacted if proof of dece'd parents is not provided, but this is the whole point of obtaining the document in the 1st place....can't win!

"Our current policy does not allow us to release (the motherís, the fatherís, the parentsí) name(s) without proof of (his, her, their) death unless we have acceptable proof of death for a number holder who is at least 100 years of age, or the number holder exceeds 120 years of age. Acceptable proofs of death include:

a certified copy of a public record of death of the number holder; or
a statement of death by the funeral director; or
a statement of death by the attending physician or the superintendent, physician, or intern of the institution where the person died; or
a certified copy of the coronerís report of death or the verdict of the coronerís jury; or
a certified copy of an official report of death or finding of death made by an agency or department of the U.S. which is authorized or required to make such a report or finding in the administration of any law of the U.S.; . . .
. . . If you can provide acceptable proof of death for ###ís (mother, father, parents, as appropriate), we can release the withheld information to you. The proof of death for the parent(s) must contain enough information for us to determine that the proof of death refers to the same individual(s) shown on the requested SS-5."
