**Send the Letter to Social Security**
Your mailing should include the following:
1. A cover letter identifying yourself, the reason you want the letter forwarded, and any information you have on the recipient, such as their SSN.
2. The letter itself, which should be in an *unsealed* envelope addressed to the missing person. If the envelope is sealed, SSA will send it back to you. They need an unsealed envelope so they can review the letter.
3. There is a $25 fee for the letter forwarding service, so include a check made out to the Social Security Administration. The fee can be waived if the letter is for 'humanitarian' reasons (such as notifying someone of a death), but will not be waived if the letter is chiefly regarding financial matters. If you want the fee to be waived, request this in your cover letter.
