Payment or Check Deposit Problem

If your check is missing, lost, or stolen, it can be replaced, but it takes time.

By Mail

If you normally receive your check by mail, wait three days after the date you normally receive your check before calling the SSA. To report a late, missing, or stolen check, contact the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. You should also consider direct deposit for future payments.

Direct Deposit

If you normally receive your check by direct deposit, report a non-receipt of payment immediately by calling the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.

According to a study, the optimal Social Security claiming age for a 55-year-old single man with a life expectancy of 76 is age 65, according to a HealthView Services analysis.

This of course depends on health and life expectancy, but since delaying Social Security benefits results in an 8 percent higher benefit, it's best to not claim early according to a HealthView Services analysis.
