Did you know that Denver is one of the main hubs for Social Security for the states of Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, and North and South Dakota? As a retiree, there are many benefits you can use through Social Security and if you need to replace a lost card, apply for benefits, or have any problems with SS, one of Denver’s many offices can help you. There are also online services as well as toll-free numbers to call to make sure all your needs are covered.
Because Denver is one of the central locations for Social Security benefits in the area, there are a few different places that you can visit:
At the U.S. Social Security Administration building at 1500 Champa #200 ODAR of SSA at 1244 Speer Blvd. The Social Security Office at 13151 W. Alameda Pkwy. for those closer to Lakewood
You can also go online to the Social Security locator and find a location that is closest to you by plugging in your zip code. If you would rather call, the toll-free number for all Social Security offices is (800)-772-1213. For individuals who are hard of hearing, please call the TTY number (800)-325-0778. Both of these lines operate from 7 A.M to 7 P.M. Monday through Friday.
There are a variety of different services that Social Security provides and you can find them all at any Denver location. Anyone who is receiving Social Security disability benefits and is 18 to 64 might be able to qualify for the Ticket to Work program. This allows individuals to get jobs, job training, and learn how to become financially independent all while keeping their Medicaid and Medicare benefits.
Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS) is another program for Social Security disability beneficiaries. This program allows you to work or increase your work with a disability while planning for your future and setting aside money. You can call (888)-306-0931 to find out more about both of these work incentive programs.
You can also go to any Social Security office to get a new social security card if you lost your old one or changed your name. They can also help you replace lost Medicare cards. For any group that is interested in a presentation of all the services that Social Security offers, you can contact Cindy Malone at the Denver Regional office.
If you aren’t near a Social Security office or don’t have the time to address your issue in person, you always have the option of going online for all your needs. Almost anything you can do face to face, you can do online through the Social Security website. You can:
Request a replacement card Get your Social Security statement See if you qualify and apply for benefits Look at your whole record of Social Security earnings
There are many more services you can use online including safeguarding your Social Security information. The easiest way to take advantage of all of these services is to create an account at My Social Security. From here you can securely manage your account and take care of all your needs.
