Probably the last thing on your list is spend- ing precious time at a Social Security office, waiting to con- duct business, especially if you don't need to. The busiest times for So- cial Security field offices and the agency's toll free telephone number are early in the week and early in the month So if your business can wait. it's best to contact us at other times. The same is true during the holiday season -- especially the week between Christmas and New Year's. If you must do busi- ness with Social Security dur- ing the holidays, you may ex- perience more busy signals on the telephone and longer wait times in local offices. There's an even better way to conduct your business: online at There you'll find a wealth of information and online services. For example,, you can apply Senior Citizens Lunch Menu Monday, December 20 Green Chile Hamburger Stew Salad & Dressing Cornbread & Margarine Peanut Butter Cookie Tuesday, December 21 Chicken Spaghetti Green Salad/Dressing Beets Garlic Bread Peaches Wednesday, December 22 Sweet & Sour Pork Oriental Vegetables Carrots Fruit Cocktail/Gelatin/Topping Thursday, December 23 Glazed Ham Yams Seasoned Green Beans Roll Pineapple Upside Down Cake Friday, December 24 Center Closed for Christmas rity online for Social Security ben- efits or for Medicare, and then you can check on the status of your pending application.
