When the relationship involves a legally adopted child or the parent of a legally adopted child, submit a certified copy of the decree or order of adoption. If the record of adoption cannot be obtained, submit one of the following documents:
- The official notice received by the adopting parents stating that the adoption has been completed; or
- A birth certificate issued as a result of the adoption proceeding.
If you are unable to furnish any of the documents described above or if the adoption proceedings have not been completed, contact the nearest field office of the RRB. The people there will be glad to assist you.
