How To Look For A Friendly Social Security Office


When applying for Social Security benefits, it helps to apply at a "friendly" office -- one that seems friendly to people with your particular health condition. While all Social Security offices are supposed to be alike, there may be differences. You don't have to file your application at the Social Security office nearest you.

You can file in any office.

 Your local disease specific non-profit organization or friends, or support group members who have gone through a similar situation, may be able to steer you to offices that are better for SSDI claims in general and for people who have survived your health condition in particular. 

For contact information about Social Security offices, click on offsite link. All you do is type in the zip code in which you're interested.

NOTE: The DDS office that processes your claim is located in your state of residence. You will not have a choice where your medical claim is processed.
