Q: Where do I contact to inquire about social security related questions or concerns? Is there a Social Security Administration office at the U.S. Embassy in Korea?
A: The U.S. Embassy in Seoul is not a Social Security claims-processing post. The Social Security Administration’s regional office is located in Manila, Philippines.
