Social Security protective filing tool

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has implemented its Online Protective Filing Too.   It allows submitting a request for an appointment to file for benefits and record a protective filing date online.  A protective filing date is established upon submission from the Tool.  The Tool collects responses to initial screening questions, determines applicable Title II and Title XVI claim types, and establishes Title II and Title XVI protective filing dates.  The individual must complete all required fields and submit the inquiry to establish a protective filing date.

The Tool gives a confirmation message onscreen and sends an email confirmation that Social Security will schedule an appointment within 7-14 business days.

The Tool is located at
