You can find Social Security offices in your area to help you with applying for benefits or assist you with other requests and tasks like replacing a lost or damaged card, changing your name, or answering questions. You can choose from a variety of options to contact the SSA. You can visit a local office, call a toll-free number specific to your request, or complete requests online.
