With all the benefits of big town living and the closeness of a Midwestern community, Louisville takes care of its senior citizens. SeniorAdvisor.com lists Louisville, Kentucky, as a city with an abundance of assisted living facilities, touting the city as one of the safest cities for retirees. Social Security benefits provide an income for eligible Louisville retirees. The federal government provides their income and the state of Kentucky provides many social and athletic programs for its seniors so they can enjoy quality of life.
There are multiple reasons that you may need to visit a Social Security office. The Social Security Administration has made use of technology and allows workers to complete some tasks using their online system. One of the tasks that you need to do in person is to complete the Social Security benefit application process. You can start the process online, but you’ll need to schedule an appointment at a Social Security office to complete the process.
