Social Security Administration (SSA) delays implementation of some key service changes

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has decided to delay implementation of some key service changes until later in 2014:

  • Beginning August 2014, the SSA will no longer issue Social Security Number (SSN) printouts in their field offices

  • People who need proof of their SSN and who cannot locate their SSN card will need to apply for a replacement card. Beginning October 2014, SSA field offices will stop providing benefit verification letters, except in emergency situations.

  • Proof of Social Security and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is available to most beneficiaries by registering for their personal MY Social Security account online at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount(External Link), or by calling their national, toll-free number, 1 (800) 772-1213.

  • Since these changes may affect your internal policies and instructions regarding proof of Social Security and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits and verification of SSNs, SSA is asking you to please review and modify your current procedures, accordingly.
