Press release: Debbie Figueroa, Public Affairs Specialist
Social Security Administration
There will be some upcoming changes to the services provided at Social Security offices across the country. Based on feedback received from many stakeholders, they have decided to delay the implementation of these changes to later in the year.
Beginning August 2014, the Social Security Administration will no longer issue Social Security number printouts in their field offices. Individuals who need proof of their Social Security number and cannot find their card, will need to apply for a replacement card.
In addition, beginning October 2014, field offices will stop providing benefit verification letters, except in emergency situations. Benefit verification is available online, and can be obtained anytime by registering for a my Social Security account located at:
or requested through the national toll-free number: 1(800)772-1213.
