Upcoming Changes in Social Security Services

Feb 7, 2014

SocialSecuritySocial Security this year is making service changes that could affect social workers and their clients.

Beginning August 2014 Social Security will no longer issue Social Security number printouts at its field officials. Individuals who need proof of their Social Security number and cannot find their card must apply for a replacement card.

Starting in October 2014, Social Security field offices will stop providing benefit verification letters except under emergency conditions. Benefit verification is available online and can be obtained at any time by registering for a my Social Security account at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount or by calling 1-800-772-1213.
