Due to a settlement with the American Council of the Blind, the 
Social Security Administration now offers new ways to receive 
communications from them. Options include Braille, Microsoft Word on 
a CD-ROM, or regular print with a follow-up phone call to read the 
information. The braille and CD options start on April 15. Email is 
not an included option, but you can call a phone number to request a 
format not listed.
Please visit this link for more information on how to change from 
printed mail to another method.

There is a link toward the bottom of the page called Request For 
Special Notice Option and as of now it is not available, so when I 
clicked the link, it said:

request at this time.

link on the page I directed you to, labeled Field Office Locator.
