Does the Social Security office ever call you?

The SSA will never (ever) call and ask for your Social Security number. It won't ask you to pay anything. And it won't call to threaten your benefits. Your caller ID might show the SSA's real phone number (1-800-772-1213), but that's not the real SSA calling.
