Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

There are couple of options you can apply for social security benefits. You start your application online or you can visit your local office to submit an application. You can also call social security directly at 1-***-***-****. At this time of year may have to wait up to 45 minutes to get an agent if you call.
