  • Social Security number (you can find this on your social security card)
  • Driver's license (of any kind)
  • 2013 year-end pay stubs and other year-end records of money received
  • 2013 untaxed income records (Social Security, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, welfare, or veterans benefits records)
