Texas Medicare Advantage Made Simple

How to Use SocialSecurity.gov or SSA.gov

 

SocialSecurity.gov (or ssa.gov ) is the official website of the U.S. Social Security Administration. Most of the management of your retirement, disability, and government health benefits can be done right on the SocialSecurity.gov website. SocialSecurity.gov contains a wealth of information, so it can give beneficiaries a better idea of what they qualify for, how to apply for benefits, and what benefits they will receive.

SocialSecurity.gov features

 

On the Social Security website, beneficiaries can get a Social Security card, apply online for retirement or disability benefits, and apply online for Medicare. Social Security statements, bills, and appeals can also be managed through their online system, which can be more convenient than going into a Social Security Administration (SSA) office in person.

However, you may need to visit an SSA office to resolve an issue you can’t figure out on the SocialSecurity.gov website. Check the Office Locator to find the SSA office nearest you. Before you go, speed things up by printing and filling out the necessary forms from the [Get a Form section on SocialSecurity.gov. And remember that once you file an application, you can check your application status online whenever you want.

You can also call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213, Monday through Friday, from 7AM to 7PM. TTY users can call 1-800-325-0778.
