They accept a certified copy; it is what I used when I applied for Medicare.

So I would need to give the SS Admin. much more notice than my employer! Seems a splendid method to stop me from backing out over "buyer's remorse": "Why no, I can't stay longer, my SS checks are arriving." I've been debating about this: is one month notice to the boss about right?

Maybe baby boomers should arrive at the SS office four or five months in advance? If there is a backlog now, just imagine.

Check your personnel department to see what they recommend.

Personally, I plan to give 60 days' notice. I think that is what OPM says we are expected to do. I want to be reasonably nice about it. There is not much sense in giving any more notice than that, because at my work they never hire a replacement until months after the position is (newly) open.

In recent months I have casually let it be known that the summer of 2010 is my target ER date, give or take half a year. But I am always very clear that this is all subject to change.
