OK, on first posting your spelled your father's name Bascomb, and I didn't find him on the SSDI. Here he is with the Bascom spelling you gave this time.
Marsh, Bascom, b 15 Nov 1922; d Jun 1969; SS card issued in OH
He wasn't old enough to be receiving an old age pension, either he was on disability, or your mother filed and received support for you as a minor child from Soc Sec until you were 18.
A copy of your father's birth certificate should show the ages of his parents when he was born. And, the state where each was born. His father's occupation may be included, too.
Since you don't know much about your father, why not obtain a copy of the application your father filled out to get his Soc Sec card. You never know what other helpful information might be on there.
Happy Hunting (^_^)
