Quick overview information:

  • Don't send a client into a local Social Security Office unless the issue is very important or dire. The best way to initiate contact is by calling the toll free national number at 1-800-772-1213. Operators are on duty from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. on business days.
  • If a client has to visit a local Social Security Office, their normal hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Select offices may be open on Fridays.
  • The Social Security website at is the best source for information. The handout shows various areas on the site with important information you can quickly navigate to if a client has questions you can't quickly answer.
