The Social Security Administration’s Seattle Region proudly serves the residents
of Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Our region encompasses 23 % of
America’s landmass and spans three time zones.
Approximately 1.8 million of our region’s 12
million people receive monthly retirement, survivors or disability benefits.
Another 209,000 get Supplemental Security Income
(SSI) payments. In all, Social Security pays more than $17 billion a year
to residents of the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.
Within the Seattle Region, we maintain a network of 54 local offices
– spanning the length and breadth of our four
states - from Fairbanks to Medford and from Idaho Falls to Grays Harbor.
But chances are good that your first contact with Social Security will
be with one of our highly trained telephone service representatives based
right here in the Pacific Northwest. One of Social Security’s four largest
teleservice centers is located in Auburn, Washington. And we have a
smaller facility in Portland, Oregon.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) website
offers visitors the opportunity to conduct much of their business with
SSA directly online. You can read about how Social Security might
help you now and in the future, estimate the amount of your retirement
benefit, and even file for benefits online. You would join the
