How can I get my address changed?

If you get Social Security benefits you can change your address online by answering a series of questions that must match the information Social Security has in their records. You can also change your address on the Internet if you have established a permanent password. If you would like to get a password, you can apply online or you can call 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778). If you do not want to answer the questions that are asked online or you do not have a permanent password, you cannot submit a change of address online. Instead, you must call the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) and speak to one of their representatives or visit your local field office. Addresses and directions to the Social Security field offices may be obtained from the Social Security Office Locator. If you received a Social Security Statement with an incorrect address, those addresses came from the Internal Revenue Service and you must make the correction with them, not Social Security. You can download the change of address form from the IRS Website, or you can call the IRS toll-free telephone number at 1-800-829-3676 and ask for Form 8822.
