Message from the regional commissioner


The Social Security benefit program impacts every individual, of all ages, income, races and nationalities. As you’ve read in these pages, we touch the lives of many of you and the people you know. We’re there at important milestones in your life.

Perhaps you’re one who will soon retire, wondering what it will be like; or you became disabled and are no longer able to work, afraid you’ll not have enough resources to support your family. You may be the widow who is only aware of the pain and loss, or perhaps you’re the young adult, uncertain whether there will be anything left in the system when you need it.

Whatever stage of life you’re currently in, our highly dedicated employees are here to serve you. It is our intent to provide you with competent, compassionate, and courteous service.

When you come to us, you may be nervous, hopeful, angry, sorrowful, or uncertain. Then you meet us and something happens. Government takes on a face. You encounter kindness, courtesy, and compassion. Fears are calmed, questions answered, and reassurance given.

Maybe you chose to do your Social Security business online. Be assured that our award winning website is safe, secure and easy to use. We’re just a click away at www.socialsecurity.gov. And there is always our toll free number at 800-772-1213.
