Proof of income letters are normally requested when some type of financial contract is being negotiated. A few examples of common situations include applying for a mortgage, renting an apartment and applying for a car loan. Basically, the other party wants to verify that you have consistent income and that you can afford the payments of the item you're applying for. Usually, proof of disability income letters will need to be accompanied by an official verification from Social Security in order to be considered valid.

Open a blank word processing document for your letter.

Type the current date followed by the contact information of the person requesting the letter at the top of the page. Click "Enter" twice.

Type a salutation using your contact's name, such as "Dear Mr. Smith:" and press "Enter" two more times.

State the reason why you're writing the proof of disability income letter in the first paragraph. For example, if you're applying for an apartment, you can say how you're writing this letter in an effort to show how you have the income to be able to afford the rental amount of the apartment in question. Press "Enter" twice to start the next paragraph.

State your exact income in the second paragraph. Here you'll want to say how much you get from your disability and how often you receive payments. You will want to say something along the lines that you receive $1,000 per month and get paid in one lump sum each month on the first day. You could also add additional information, such as when your disability payments started and whether your disability is permanent, or if your payments are anticipated to end at some point. Press "Enter" twice to move to the next paragraph.

Write a paragraph detailing your current monthly expenses. Only complete this section if you're requested to do so. State each of your monthly bills along with their amounts. Press "Enter" twice.

Close the letter with "Thank You," or "Sincerely," press "Enter" two more times, and sign your name.

Request a proof of income letter from Social Security as evidence. This letter can be requested on the Social Security website by filling out a form (see Resource). Attach this letter to your written letter before submitting it.
