  1. i began the application process recently, and signed off to obtain information. I have now obtained the Social Security account, but can’t seem to get back to completing the original application…. where do I go? I am not retiring and will not be applying to receive any benefits at this time.

    • Hi, James. For your security, we do not have access to private information in this venue. We ask that members in our Blog community work with our offices with specific questions. You can call us at 1-800-772-1213, Monday through Friday, between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., for assistance. Generally, you will have a shorter wait if you call later in the day.
