SOCIAL SECURITY: Most convenient SS office is online

TERRE HAUTE — You probably don’t need anyone to tell you that times are tough for many people right now. The past year has seen a recession-driven increase in applications for Social Security retirement and disability benefit applications. These increases translate into busier offices and telephone lines.

So if you need information, or want to apply for benefits, visit the most conveniently located office Social Security has: our online office at www.socialsecurity.gov. There, you can apply online for Retirement, Spouses, Disability and Medicare benefits. There’s no need to fight the traffic to visit an office or wait for an appointment. Our Web site makes it simple, allowing you to apply for retirement benefits in as little as 15 minutes.

If you’re not certain you’re ready to apply, we have online resources that can help you decide. Our Retirement Estimator will allow you to enter different scenarios to come up with the retirement plan best for you. You can find it at www.socialsecurity.gov/

estimator.

A Disability Starter Kit makes it easy to prepare for your disability application. The kit explains the documentation and information you’ll be required to share on the application, and includes checklists and worksheets to help take the mystery out of applying. You can find the Disability Starter Kit at www.socialsecurity.gov/

disability on the left side of the page.

There are other things you can do online, such as applying for a replacement Medicare card, change your address, telephone number or Direct Deposit information. In addition, with April 15 right around the corner, you may request an SSA-1099 online for tax purposes. You can learn about these and other online services at www.socialsecurity.gov/onlineservices.
