Inspector General Warns Public About New Social Security Benefit Suspension Scam

Created: March 20, 2020

The Inspector General of Social Security, Gail S. Ennis, is warning the public about fraudulent letters threatening suspension of Social Security benefits due to COVID-19-related office closures. We will not suspend or discontinue benefits because our offices are closed to the public for in-person service. Read the fraud advisory.

Will SSA provide in-person services during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Created: March 18, 2020

No. Please do not come into one of our local offices. We cannot accept walk-in visitors at this time.

On Tuesday, March 17, 2020, we suspended face-to-face service to the public in our field offices and hearings offices nationwide until further notice. This decision protects the population we serve—older Americans and people with underlying medical conditions—and our employees during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

How can I get help from SSA?

We will provide limited, critical services via phone, mail, and online, while we focus our efforts on serving people most in need.
