Message for U.S. Citizens:  Social Security Administration Outreach in Olongapo City on September 19, 2019 and in Angeles City on September 20, 2019

U.S. Embassy representatives from the Social Security Administration (SSA) will conduct outreach visits in Olongapo City on September 19 and in Angeles City on September 20 from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  SSA will provide the following services:

  • Discuss basic entitlement requirements for the different types of Social Security benefits.
  • Develop benefit claims.  Retirement and Disability applications can be done online at www.ssa.gov and do not require an interview.
  • Process Social Security number applications.
  • Resolve post-entitlement cases (e.g., change of address, report of death, Medicare enrollments, direct deposit enrollment, non-receipt of benefits, etc.)

To expedite your visit, please bring both original and photocopies of documents that you need to submit to SSA. The SSA representative will keep the photocopies and return the original documents to you.

Please note that only representatives from the Social Security Administration will be present at these two outreach events.  Embassy staff will be unable to answer questions regarding services from American Citizen Services (ACS), the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), or the Department of Homeland Security – Citizenship and Immigration Services (DHS-USCIS).
