New York Social Security Office Notes
Social Security Card Centers
If you live in the Brooklyn or Queens area, you may need to go to a 'card center' instead of a 'field office'. Card centers are centralized processing sites for all Social Security number applications for area residents. You must visit a card center if you need a Social Security card, your personal information needs updating, or your employer asked you to visit a Social Security office.
For other needs (ex. applying for benefits) you may visit the field office listed above.
Social Security office hours have been reduced the past few years. Now almost all Social Security offices have the same hours of 9:00 to noon on Wednesdays, and 9:00 to 4:00 on other weekdays. Fridays may be a bit less crowded. Try to get an appointment by phone first. You can do many things like signup for retirement benefits online at ssa.gov.
