Question: Can I Use A Post Office Box For Social Security?

You can use a P O Box as your address for this purpose.

Your Social Security benefits are provided by direct deposit into a checking/savings account or via a prepaid debit card.

Many forms will ask for a street address, and will specifically state no PO boxes. However, neither a PO Box nor a “private mail box” can be used as a “registered” address for legal notices. People generally use their law firm for purpose of their business’ registered address, or pay a “Registered Agent” service.
