Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

You can get your benefits reinstated by calling Social Security at 1-***-***-**** between the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

Your benefit payments could have re-started in the month you were released from jail.

You will need to provide a copy of your release papers from the jail, so if you do not have a copy right now, contact the jail so you will have a copy to provide to Social Security.

The following link contains additional information you will find helpful:

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

If I have answered your question, please take a moment to rate my answer since that is the only way I receive credit for answering you.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
