The United States Social Security Administration has several contact ways for all U.S. citizens. Any of the contact forms are valid, but there is a better one, above the others. This has been announced by the Administration itself via Twitter to assure all beneficiaries that they can get direct and constant contact with the SSA.
This is not to say that the other forms of contact are not fine, but that this one is the best. This is because of its speed and immediacy. Social Security is much easier with this form of contact, as it can have everyone access their data without the need to wait. In addition to this, beneficiaries can check everything related to their benefit at any time of the day.
The best way to contact the Social Security Administration
As the Social Security Administration indicates through its official Twitter account, the best way to contact them is online. This way of doing so is completely free and does not require anything else apart from a My Social Security account. This account is very easy to get and anyone with an SSA card in their name can have one.
Thanks to this method, the beneficiary can inquire directly via chat and check all other personal information. It is a very simple way to have all your information in the same place and at the same time you can talk directly with the Social Security workers. However, there are other ways to contact the Administration.
Other ways to contact the SSA
Contacting the Social Security Administration online is not the only way to do it. In addition to this, there are other ways, although they are slower and less efficient. However, they are also useful and available to all retired users. These are the methods:
- Attending an office. There are offices all over the United States and you can find your nearest local office. At some of them you will need an appointment, so find out before you go.
- By telephone. The telephone is another sometimes quick way to get in touch. The problem is that there are a limited number of possible calls, so the Social Security Administration cannot accept all calls at once. The telephone number is 1 (800) 772-1213.
These two ways are also very useful, but less so than the online way of contacting the Social Security Administration. So, get your My Social Security account and avoid problems and save time.
