For many years my social security benefit was deposited, on the 3rd of the month, to my checking account in the amount of $526.90.
Without any notice of change or explanation, on December 31, 2015 the deposit was reduced to $396.70 for the January benefit. on Feb. 3, 2016 the deposit again was in the amount of $396.70.
Who or how do I make a contact to learn the reason for this reduced benefit?
