Dear Friend,

As we face the COVID-19 health emergency, I wanted to provide you with useful Social Security information, including updates on stimulus payments for Social Security beneficiaries, how to request a replacement Social Security card online, and changes in the operations of Social Security offices. Scroll down to learn more!


Stimulus Payments


Under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, most Coastal Virginians will qualify for stimulus payments of up to $1,200. Last week, the U.S. Department of Treasury announced that Social Security recipients who do not typically file tax returns will now receive a $1,200 payment. Beneficiaries will receive these payments by direct deposit or paper check, just as they normally would receive their Social Security benefits. See here for an in-depth FAQ on stimulus payments.


Changes in Operations of Social Security Offices

For the safety of our community, local Social Security offices will only be able to provide services over the phone or online. To find your local Social Security office’s phone number, please click here


Creating an Online Social Security Account


The Social Security Administration recommends that you create a My Social Security account to access online services such as obtaining benefits, applying for retirement, disability, and Medicare benefits, or requesting a replacement Social Security card. You can click here to create your account.
