From Social Security Administration, Office of External Affairs:

The Social Security Administration is pleased to announce the creation of the new Center for Section 504 Compliance.  Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities, and requires the federal government to provide individuals with meaningful access to government facilities, programs, and services.

Although the provision of accommodations to the public is not new, the Center for 504 Compliance is new to Social Security.  Acting Commissioner Carolyn W. Colvin is committed to improving our service to individuals with disabilities.  The Center for Section 504 Compliance will provide guidance to Social Security offices to ensure that our customers with disabilities have meaningful access when conducting business with us.

The Center for Section 504 Compliance will have a Toll-Free Number, where individuals may report issues and make suggestions regarding meaningful access.  The toll-free number is 1-844-881-9061.  The business hours will be Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Eastern time (except federal holidays).
