In recent years many Americans have been rethinking their retirement plans and when they should start collecting their Social Security benefits. Changes in the economy, changes in the workforce, and a sense of financial insecurity are all impacting the decisions that workers are making about Social Security.
Retirement is meant to be a relaxing phase of an individual’s life. However, if you have limited retirement savings, it can also be stressful, as you might have to make adjustments to your lifestyle now that you no longer have a regular income.
On August 22, 2023 the Social Security Administration announced that that they will no longer be accepting applications by fax. In order to submit an application for any of the different types of benefits that the Social Security Administration offers you’ll have to use another method of submission. In most cases the best way to submit your application and all of the supporting documents is to make an appointment at your local SSA office.
