Hi, my name is ***** ***** you are on a private website called "JustAnswer." It appears from your post that you were trying to contact Social Security.

If you normally receive a check by mail, remember it's Christmas season and the mail is a bit slower than usual. However, if your check is more than two or three days late, you must contact Social Security.

Call them at(###) ###-####Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. eastern time; you'll probably have to wait a half hour to an hour on "hold" before you get a person on the line.

Or, visit your local Social Security office. You can find their address, hours, and directions using their locator tool here: https://secure.ssa.gov/ICON/main.jsp

I hope that helped. To avoid future delays you can sign up for direct deposit by contacting Social Security as above, or by creating an online account at https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/

Just click on "Sign in or Create an Account" and the program will walk you through the process. Once you've established an account you can set up direct deposit online.

Hope that helped. If so please don't forget to rate this answer. And thank you for using Just Answer.
