Social Security Administration

Since 1935, the Social Security Administration has been entrusted to safeguard your personal information. Over the course of our nation's history, we have responded and met the needs of the public during personal and national crisis, and other life changing events. To meet these challenges and the  expectations of our public, we have embraced technology. From paper applications to electronic filing, we continue to evolve and continue to ensure that the confidentiality of your personal information is safeguarded. This is our commitment to you.

Social Security Administration Online

Did you know business that previously required a visit to a Social Security Office can now easily be conducted on the Social Security Administration website? Here at Social Security, we understand that your time is valuable. By using our website you eliminate any travel and office waiting time. Our website is available 24 hours, seven days a week and offers many services.

For example, you can:

  • Apply for Retirement, Spouse's and Disability benefits and then check the status of your application
  • Estimate your future benefits using our Retirement Estimator
  • Start or change your direct deposit
  • Request a Social Security Statement
  • Apply for a replacement Medicare Card and/or apply for extra help with Medicare prescription drug plan costs

For additional services, go to and click on, "What You Can Do Online".  I believe you'll find it very helpful and informative. If you do decide to file online, be assured it is safe and secure! Of course if you have any questions we are here to answer them. Representatives are available at our toll free number, 1-800-772-1213 or you may visit us at your local offices listed below.
