SSA.gov/Social Security.gov | The Official Site of the U.S. Social Security Administration
SSA.gov is the official website of the U.S. Social Security Administration. It can also be found at socialsecurity.gov. Most of the management of your retirement, disability, and government health benefits can be done right here on the SSA.gov site. A wealth of information, SSA.gov can give beneficiaries a better idea of what they qualify for, how to apply for benefits, and what benefits they will receive.
SSA.gov is broken down into a few menu items:
- Business Services
Through the header navigation and also the "Top Services" section on the left side of the page, users can get their 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 much more convenient than going into an SSA office in person.
Need to visit a Social Security office to resolve something that you couldn't figure out on the socialsecurity.gov website? Try the Office Locator to find an SSA office near you. But before you go, print and fill out the necessary forms in the Get a Form section on SSA.gov. Once you put an application in, you can check your application status online whenever you want.
