The mission statement displayed on the SSA website indicates their desire to "Advance the economic security of the nation's people through compassionate and vigilant leadership in shaping and managing America's Social Security programs."
The SSA offers these programs since most people would rather return to work instead of being permanently disabled, and the less people utilizing Social Security disability benefits the better it is for the SSA and taxpayers in general.
In general, the Social Security Administration (SSA) looks at a person's ability to return to the job they were doing prior to the disability, or instead, at the possibility of training the person to work at another occupation.
Examples of agency-specific job announcements include those found on the websites of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Social Security Administration (SSA).
If you are struggling with finding someone on the index or would like to know how to report someone to it, you can contact the Social Security Administration (SSA) by calling 1-800-772-1213 or visit the SSA website.
In 1945 the federal government disbanded the SSB and established the Social Security Administration (SSA) to manage distributing benefits, but left the IRS in charge of collecting the funds.
Any change affecting the information on Social Security cards, such as a change in name or immigration status, needs to be reported to the SSA along with a request for an updated card.
To request an official name change with the SSA, applicants must prove the legality behind the change, either with a court order, divorce decree, or marriage certificate.
Requests for replacement cards cannot be made over the phone or on the SSA Website because original documents must be presented before a replacement card will be issued.
It is important to keep all of your personal information up-to-date with the SSA because an unreported name change might make filing for taxes more difficult.
