Social Security manager in Marshall
If your son or daughter is a high school student turning 18, you've probably spent some time shopping for school supplies and the latest fashions, working out the schedule for the academic year, maybe even looking into colleges. If your young senior is collecting monthly Social Security benefits, here's one more thing to add to your "Back-to-School" checklist. Form SSA-1372!
To make sure that Social Security benefits continue beyond age 18, eligible students must obtain certification from school officials that they are still in high school and provide it to Social Security. Otherwise, monthly Social Security benefits automatically stop when a student turns 18. So be prepared and download this form from our website and have your child's school official complete and mail it to the Marshall SSA Office. Our address is 507 Jewett St, STE B, Marshall MN 56258.
Our website, www.socialsecurity.gov/schoolofficials outlines how the process works with instructions on what the student and school official must do to ensure that benefits continue past the student's 18th birthday. Social Security's website includes a downloadable version of the required form (SSA-1372 - Student's Statement Regarding School Attendance) and answers to frequently asked questions for school officials and students.
Beginning Aug. 15, your Social Security Administration hours will be from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
