What is a Social Security Office?

A social security office provides information about U.S. social security programs and benefits, including eligibility, processes applications, and disburses benefit. This office also investigates disability claims. Some services of the social security office are available online while others require in-person visits. This office is best known for administering retirement benefits including social security pensions and worker disability payments.

The social security office also helps process applications for Medicare benefits and delivers Medicare cards to recipients. Applicants who seek disability benefits must visit a local social security office in person to complete the application process. The office handles vital records such as birth records and death records, keeps a list of name changes and marriage records, and works to reduce identity theft and benefits fraud.
