Social Security Administration Workshop

Date:  2-17-2016 Riley Meeting Rooms at Mahany Center

Under an arrangement with the City of Roseville, the Social Security Administration arranged to make three free public workshop for Roseville residents to learn more about SSA and get questions answered.  Loren and Sue Cook of the Fiddyment Farm Neighborhood Association attended the 2nd presentation and felt it was very helpful.

Deogracias Santos, Public Affairs Specialist, made the hour long presentation, and then he and his District manager Rodrigo Orosco answered follow-up questions with individuals.  Mr. Santos encouraged residents to open a protected online account on their SSA website.  Go to My Social Security on the website to retrieve a “yearly statement” since they are no longer automatically mailed out now.  Make sure your information is correct and contact them if you see any discrepancies that might affect future qualifications for your benefits.  You can also retrieve an SSA-1099 for your taxes if needed.  Replacement SSA cards will soon be available online, but right now you must still go to their office to obtain one.  Call the local office (910 Cirby Way) through 1-800-772-1213 to make appointments for replacement cards or more extensive assistance.

He talked about the requirements to receive SSA benefits, the age and decisions to make when considering to start collecting SSA benefits, survivor benefits, and other special options that might be available to make sure you collect your full potential benefits.
He briefly addressed Medicare and disability options, part B and Part D and extra help that might be available through advocacy programs.

Mr. Santos also discussed limitations on “wage” earnings after you start collecting SSA benefits.  He advised that applicants can start the application process 3 months before their eligibility date, and he said he encourages people to start the process early to resolve any discrepancies to avoid delays to receiving your benefits.  There’s a list of the extensive documents you will need to provide on the SSA website.


The 3rd workshop will be in the downtown library, Wednesday 3/16/2016 at 1PM.  You may find it very helpful to attend, even if you already are receiving SSA benefits.
