From what I understand, the online document from the Social Security website is all that is available and I read that the State Department will not authenticate the letter. Complicating the matter somewhat is the fact that social security questions are now to be handled in the US embassy in Costa Rica.
Inmigraciones had no problem with the internet printout attached to an affidavit by me and notarized here that it was a true copy of the online record and granted me permanent residence. However, the local banks will have none of it. I am wondering if I can attach this to some kind of affidavit from the embassy stating something or other (perhaps merely that there is a document attached) so I can present some kind of document with an embassy notary? (form seems to take precedence over substance here).
Any ideas? Or other ways to deal with this problem?
"attach this to some kind of affidavit" "stating something or other" "present some kind of document"
Care to be more specific?
