Beginning August 2014, Social Security number printouts will no longer be available at field offices. Individuals who need proof of their Social Security number and cannot find their card will need to apply for a replacement card. In addition, beginning October 2014, Social Security administration field offices will stop providing benefit verification letters, except in emergency situations. Benefit verifications are available online, and can be obtained by registering for a mySocial Security account, or by calling 1-800-772-1213.
The Social Security Administration has expanded the services that are available online. When you create an online account you can:
• Apply for benefits
• Get your Social Security Statement
• Appeal a decision
• Find out if you qualify for benefits
• Estimate your future benefits
• Block electronic access to your information
• And more!
To help familiarize you with these online tools, representatives from the Social Security Administration will host a free class on Wednesday, April 23, at the Community Technology Center at the Central Library.
Anyone who currently receives Social Security benefits should consider attending, as well as those who assist others with benefits.
