SERVICES: SSA provides benefits under two programs: Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSI benefits are paid to those who qualify as aged (65 or older), blind or disabled. Social Security benefits may be paid to those who have retired or become bing or disabled and their qualifying spouses and children. Deceased persons’ spouses or children may also qualify for benefits. Social Security provides Medicare to those who have received disability benefits for two years or who are 65 years old.
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS: SSI requires that the applicant be 65 years old, blind or disabled, is a US citizen or a legally admitted resident alien and resides in the USA. The applicant and their spouses’ or parents(s) income are considered in determining the amount of payment and the resources (assets) owned by the claimant, their wife or their parent will also be considered.
Social Security requires a wage earner pay into Social Security before they or their “auxiliaries” can be considered “insured” for benefits. The amount of the person’s check is based on the amount of contribution in the years before filing a claim. For those who are filing on someone else’s record, proof of their relationship to that person is needed, a marriage certificate, for example. Afe is also important, so a birth certificate or baptismal certificate is required.
GEOGRAPHICAL AREA SERVED: The Casper District Office currently serves Natrona, Converse, Washakie, and Niobrara Counties. The Casper office has office in Riverton as well.
APPLICATION PROCEDURES: People can come into the office or make appointments. If their need is to file a claim, then the best choice is to make an appointment, which could either be face to face in the office or by telephone. If the person needs to change their address, report earnings, set up or discontinue direct deposit or take care of other simple matters, they do not need an appointment. To set up an appointment or telephone, they can call the national 1 800 number 1-800-772-1213, or call the Casper office at 307-261-6209. Long distance direct to the office can be done through 1-800-780-1106.
