Social Security – Certification of Documents

For complete instructions on applications for a Social Security card (including replacing a lost Social Security card), you should contact the regional SSA office in Manila, Philippines at FBU.Manila@ssa.gov.

All supporting documents with an application need to be certified by the U.S. Consulate. This is provided as a mail-in service only. Mail the following items to the U.S. Consulate General serving your area:

  1. The original documents
  2. A brief cover letter requesting the certifications for a Social Security application
  3. A self-addressed, Express Post or Registered Post (minimum A4 sized) envelope for the return of the original and certified copies of your documents to you

Please allow approx. 5 business days for our office to certify the documents and return them to you.
