Call the 800 number for the Social Security Administration and see what they advise. You can also walk into a local Social Security office and ask. They may accept a power of attorney, or a guardianship, or something less formal. I have had various responses depending on who I talk with.

If he has a lawyer, he can give you permission to find out from the lawyer or you can secure permission to contact SS to find out.
