To find the location of a local Social Security office, visit the Social Security website office locator page, and input the zip code. After clicking the Locate button, the nearest Social Security office is provided. Local agencies for other benefits are provided as well.
As of 2015, call the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213 or the TTY number at 1-800-325-0778 to schedule, reschedule or cancel an appointment at a local Social Security office. The hours to call are between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. It is also possible to call the local Social Security office to make an appointment or make changes to an existing appointment. Applicants are encouraged to call the toll-free number if they have any questions. Social Security does not have an option to schedule or modify appointments online. There is no need for an appointment to file for benefits or to appeal a disability decision.
The Social Security website also allows users to file for benefits for retirement benefits, Medicare and disability benefits. There is an option to estimate any future benefits as well. For those who would rather apply for benefits in person, it is still possible to do so at a local Social Security office.
