Phyllis M. Smith

The Social Security benefit programs touch the lives of nearly every individual. The Chicago Region serves the members of the twenty-eight Indian Reservations through a network of 222 field offices located in the six states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Our highly dedicated employees are here to assist you and members of your tribes on matters related to Social Security. We believe a close relationship between Social Security offices and tribal leaders is the most effective means to serve the public.

To support your efforts, we are pleased to provide you with the Social Security Administration Benefit Program Guide. The Guide includes an overview of the programs we administer, descriptions of various types of benefits, and useful Social Security contacts in the six-state Chicago Region.

We hope you find this guide helpful and that you will contact us at the address below any time we can be of assistance to you.
