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.
Try online services like setting up direct deposit at ssa.gov. Social Security office hours were cut in November, 2012. Now, generally, all Social Security offices are open 9:00 to 4:00, except Wednesdays when hours are 9:00 to noon. Try calling to get an appointment before travelling. More appointments may be available on Fridays.
