Posted on 10/21/2020 — Mike White, District Manager of the local Social Security Administration in Binghamton, NY, has asked us to share the following information:
The Social Security Administration remains committed to providing uninterrupted benefits and vital services the public relies on, especially during the current coronavirus pandemic. Despite challenges government and businesses face at this time, the Social Security Administration wants people to know they remain ready and able to help them by phone with most Social Security matters.
You can speak with a Social Security representative by calling the local Binghamton Social Security office at 1-866-964-3971 or call their National 800 Number at 1-800-772-1213 (1-800-325-0778 TTY).

Although the Social Security Administration offices are not providing service for walk-in visitors, appointments may be scheduled for limited, critical issues if someone cannot be helped by phone and/or if they cannot get the information they need online.
The Social Security Administration encourages residents to call or take advantage of their secure and convenient online services when applying for Retirement, Disability, and Medicare benefits; check the status of an application or appeal; request a replacement Social Security card (in most areas); print a benefit verification letter, and much more.
Most business with the Social Security Administration can be done online but we know that many people still rely on phone or in-person help. That’s why we want people to know they can still count on us by phone.
Lastly, the Social Security Administration knows that getting medical and other documentation can be difficult due to the pandemic. They continue to extend deadlines wherever possible.
