If you are in Canada, British Virgin Islands or Samoa, you may obtain services from an SSA Field Office.
In countries where there are a relatively large number of Social Security customers, American embassies and consulates have personnel who have been specially trained to provide a full range of services, including the taking of applications for benefits.
For phone numbers and addresses of offices serving customers outside of the U.S. see Service Around the World.
You may also contact us by phone if you speak English. You can call our office using the telephone numbers provided. You will need to pay for the call because we do not have toll-free service for calls from outside the U.S. If you call, please do so during normal business hours for the Eastern U.S.
