Customer Question
Well I am retiring...

Well I am retiring in May, and I need to apply for my Social Security Benefit! Can I make an appointment at my nearest branch or do I have to just walk in?

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits properly. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

I need to apply for my benefit, since I am retiring in May!

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?

No not really

Please note we are not affiliated with the SSA. This is an information and education site.

1)You can apply by making an appointment with your local office. Technically you can do a walk in but you are far better off with an appointment.

2) Also you can call 1-***-***-**** Monday Through Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

3) You can also apply online here:

Good luck.
