Program Description

Social Security provides retirement, disability, and survivor benefits to workers and their dependents.

If you move, you may change the mailing address you use for your benefits.

Even if you don’t currently get Social Security benefits, you may still want to change your address. This change will ensure you get other notices from SSA.

General Program Requirements

If a disaster caused you to move, you can change the mailing address you use for your Social Security benefits and information.

Application Process

If you get Social Security benefits or have Medicare, you can change your address online. To make the change online, you must first create a My Social Security account. You may also call or visit a local office to make the change.

If any of the following apply to you, you must call or visit a local office to change your address:

  • I do not currently get Social Security benefits.
  • I do not currently have Medicare.
  • I do not have a U.S. mailing address.
  • I do get Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Use our Office Locator to find a local office near you.
