February 5, 2010, Newsletter Issue #40: Contacting & Locating The Social Security Office

Tip of the Week

To begin your application for or to ask questions about Social Security Disability,  you may call your local Social Security office, or call the national toll-free number  1-800-772-1213.

To find your local Social Security office telephone number in the telephone book, look under "U.S. Government Offices", usually in a blue section in the front of your "Yellow Pages" telephone book. Where I live, it is in a section called "Government Listings", right before all of the "City Of ___" and "State Of ___" listings. The name is officially "Social Security Administration".

The website address (also called a URL) is at: http://www.socialsecurity.gov

For general information and services, the Social Security office is open from 7:00 am until 7 pm.

You may also listen to pre-recorded information 24 hours a day, which many times will answer general questions when you call the nationwide toll-free number.

The TTY number to call is 1-800-325-0778.

Information is available in Spanish as well as English.
