COVID-19: What older adults need to know

In the News - Social Security and Medicare

Older people are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19 which may result in increased stress during a crisis. Fear and anxiety about the COVID-19 pandemic can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions.The Center for Disease Control has several tips that all seniors collecting Social Security and with Medicare can do to stay healthy.

The CDC recommends that you:

  • Stay home if possible.
  • Wash your hands often.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
  • Avoid all cruise travel and non-essential air travel.
  • Contact your healthcare professional if you have concerns about COVID-19 or if you are sick.

The Social Security Offices Will Only Offer Phone Services

All local Social Security offices will be closed to the public for in-person service starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020. This decision protects the population we serve - older Americans and people with underlying medical conditions - and our employees during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. However, we are still able to provide critical services.

Please read this Social Security Press Release to learn more about the closures.
