Tell us you want to apply for SSI and other benefits or help someone else to do so. This process takes about 5-10 minutes. We ask for basic information:
- Name, date of birth, and Social Security number of the person interested in SSI
- Mailing address, phone number, and email address (optional) for the person interested in SSI
- Your name, phone number, and email address (optional) if you are helping someone else
After you complete the online process, a Social Security representative schedules an appointment to help you apply for benefits. We will send the appointment date and time by mail (and email, if provided) within 7-14 business days to the person interested in applying. In some cases, a Social Security representative may call to schedule the appointment.
