Where You Can Seek Social Security Benefits in North Carolina
All the Social Security offices in North Carolina offer a lot of the same benefits, such as:
- Applying for different kinds of benefits, like SSDI, SSI, retirement, survivor, or spousal
- Applying for Medicare or getting a new Medicare card
- Receiving an estimate for benefits
- Receiving a letter of proof of benefits
- Requesting a name or address change
- Requesting a new Social Security card
- Reviewing the history of your earnings or Social Security statement
Keep in mind that they may vary based on location. You also have the option to get the services you need online, so you may never have to go to an office unless it’s for something very specific that has to be done in person.
However, if you still want to or must go to an office, you have nearly 40 to pick from in North Carolina. They’re all generally open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm and closed on Saturday and Sunday. You can find a handful of them in major cities, like:
The Asheville Social Security Office is at:
800 Centerpark Drive
Asheville, North Carolina 28805
If you’re coming from the east, take Exit 6 off I-240. Then, make a right on Chunns Cove Road and immediately make another right turn on Piney Mountain Road. You’ll see the office on the left in Centre Park.
If you’re coming from the west, you’ll also take Exit 6 off I-240. Then, turn right on Tunnel Road and again onto Chunns Cove Road. Go under the Interstate bridge and make a right on Piney Mountain Road.
If you live around Asheville, but the drive is still too much, there is an office in Hendersonville if that’s closer to you.
The Charlotte Social Security Office is located at:
2201 Coronation Blvd.
Charlotte, North 28227
You’ll find the office between Monroe Road and East Independence Blvd, off Sardis Blvd. It’s the first building on the left and on the first floor.
If you go Southeast on E. Independence Blvd, make a right onto Sardis Road.
Coming from the North, after about a quarter of a mile past Crown Point Executive Drive, make a left onto Coronation Blvd.
There are nearby Social Security offices in Gastonia, Rock Hill, and Concord if you live closer to those cities.
Raleigh and nearby residents can find the Raleigh Social Security Office at:
4701 Old Wake Forest Road
Raleigh, North Carolina 27609
Take Wake Forest Exit 10 from Interstate 440 and head north for about a mile. Turn right at the intersection of Old Wake Forest Road and Falls of the Neuses. You’ll see a Red Lobster at the corner and go to the right about a quarter of a mile. Then, the building will be on the left, right after an apartment complex called The Windsor Falls.
Parking is limited, so you may have to park in the overflow on Sunbowfalls Lane.
If you can’t make it to the Raleigh office, the Durham, Henderson, and Smithfield locations may be more convenient.
What to Expect From Your Appointment at a North Carolina Social Security Office
When you come in for your appointment—and yes, you should make an appointment unless you don’t mind waiting in long lines—you must bring in certain documents, such as:
- Your medical records
- Your birth certificate
- Your passport
- Proof of residency or citizenship
- Proof of income or bank statement
Give the office a call and ask if there’s any other paperwork you need to bring with you.
