There are two essential ways to file for social security, and it depends to a small extent on whether you have a computer and whether you know how to use a computer. The simplest way to apply is to go to the SSA ( which stands for Social Security Administration) dot gov website (SSA.GOV). They have a very, very simple form that you have to fill out, and that starts your process of the claim.
If you’re uncomfortable doing that, you can go to the Social Security office, and they will help you there. This is one of those instances where when the government says “We’re here to help you.” they really are here to help you and get your claim filed. After your claim is filed, they may not be quite so helpful, but in terms of the initial application, it’s either on the computer, simple form, or by going to Social Security.
