Social Security Administration

Social Security touches the life of virtually every person in America. It helps not only older Americans, but also workers who become disabled, and families in which a spouse or parent dies. We run one of the nation's largest entitlement programs - the Old Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance program. We also administer the Supplemental Security Income program, which provides financial support to aged, blind or disabled adults and children with limited income and resources. 

Social Security provides information for the American public, organizations and employers through our website, (, toll-free number (1-800-772-1213), publications, and agency staff outreach efforts. We maintain over 1,200 community-based field offices across the country.  We also have 28 teleservice centers, 10 regional offices, eight processing centers, 14 Social Security card centers, one Data Operations Center, 168 hearing offices and five National Hearing Centers.  We’re with you throughout life’s journey — from birth, to marriage, and into retirement. With retirement, disability, and survivors, and other benefits, Social Security is here to help you and millions of others secure today and tomorrow.
