Hi. My name's Lane ... I can help here.

...

You can apply for retirement benefits in several ways. (Most find it easier to use the online application)

...

See this from Social Secufity;

...

You can complete an application for Retirement, Spouse's, Medicare or Disability Benefits online.

If you do not wish to use the online application, or the application for the benefit you want is not available online, you can:

  • Call us at 1-***-***-**** (TTY 1-***-***-****); or
  • Visit your local Social Security office. An appointment is not required, but if you call ahead and schedule one, it may reduce the time you spend waiting to apply.

Please let me know if you have ANY questions at ALL, before rating me.

If this has helped, and you DON’T have other questions … I'd appreciate a positive rating (using the stars or faces on your screen, and clicking “submit").

...

Thanks!

Lane
