Find Federal Benefits and Services

Q. Is there one phone number I can call to get information about various federal benefits and services, such as applying for Social Security and Medicare and renewing a passport?

A. Yes. The federal government has launched a telephone information service, 800-FED-INFO (1-800-333-4636), to help people who are seeking an answer to just about any question regarding U.S. government benefits and services. Operators speaking English and Spanish are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern time.
