Social Security Online
|Press Office Public Service Announcement|
Whether you’re moving next door or all the way across the country, reporting your new address to Social Security is the best way to make sure your benefits continue arriving on time.
Even if your benefits go to your bank through direct deposit, or you only receive Medicare benefits, Social Security still needs a current address to send you notices and other correspondence about important changes that could affect you. And if Social Security is unable to contact you, your benefits could stop altogether until your information is updated.
Let us know before you go by visiting www dot.socialsecurity dot gov slash changeofaddress. Just by answering some questions, we can process your change of address electronically. You’ll receive a confirmation letter in the mail. If you prefer, you can call our toll-free number at 1-800-772-1213. Either way, we’ll be glad to help you.
