If you’re looking for information or support from the Social Security Administration (SSA), the Social Security website is likely your best option.
At a time when support requests are skyrocketing and staffing is still limited, self-service is highly helpful. The SSA knows this. It’s why they encourage people to use online support — and why they’ve revamped their website.
The overhaul is a commitment to their desire to get back on track serving seniors and Americans from all age groups. What does the updated website offer? Some functions include:
- Checking for eligibility
- Getting important forms and documents
- Repaying overpayments and deducting taxes
These are only a few of the options the site offers. It’s a huge help to those who would rather skip the long waits in person or on the phone.
