Social Security Question

I know you can get the original Social Security application. But does Social Security have any other information you can get. We moved several times in the 1960's, so was wondering if they have old letters, change of address info ect. THANKS, John

At the Social Security Administration website it says you can get

"information from the claims folders of past benefit recipients"

There seems to be a "catch" though:

"Claims files are usually destroyed within a few years of the final decision on a claim."
