Filing for Benefits, Even if an SS Agent Says You Shouldn’t

Here at The AMAC Foundation’s Social Security Advisory Service, we regularly hear from people who have been given incorrect information by an agent at the Social Security Administration (SSA). That’s not meant to denigrate the agency, but rather to highlight a simple fact of life – humans make mistakes. Tom Margenau is a long time employee of the SSA, now retired and writing regular articles about all matters related to Social Security. In Tom’s latest article appearing at The Arizona Daily Star (, he explains that if you believe that you are truly entitled to benefits that an SSA agent has told you you’re not eligible for, then you should go ahead and file for those benefits anyway. Doing so puts you on record as filed, and could mean more money if you are, indeed, eligible. Click here to read more.

Also, if you’re unsure about your individual situation under Social Security or have questions about your personal benefit entitlements, note that The AMAC Foundation provides an independent free-to-the-public Social Security Advisory service to help Americans navigate the complexities of this program. Learn more about it here…
