Like Cats? Baseball?

Like cats?  Yes, this is really related to Social Security.

Official Social Security information is available on several social media platforms in addition to the agency website, www.socialsecurity.gov

Four recent uploads to the Social Security YouTube channel feature cats promoting online retirement applications. Cats not interesting to you? Watch one of the baseball stadium videos instead. 

Interested in filing your SSA retirement application? Go to the Benefits tab of www.socialsecurity.gov to learn about retirement benefits, estimate your own amount, consider your options and then file your application online when convenient for you. Some application questions have drop down boxes to provide more information. 

File online to apply for Social Security retirement or spouses benefits. To do so, you must be at least 61 years and 9 months old and want to start your benefits in the next four months. When completed your application is reviewed by SSA representatives, usually but not always from your local office. If needed, a SSA representative will contact you.

Filing online is gaining in popularity and you are invited to go online. However, if online filing is not for you or if you have unanswered questions mid-way through the application, call the SSA national number (1-800-772-1213, TTY 1-800-325-0778) for an appointment. Appointments can be made for either a telephone or in-office interview.

Either way, you can still watch the cat and baseball SSA videos.
