Debtors have the option of using their credit card to repay their debt. The debtor
can authorize a one-time payment over the telephone or request the Social Security
Administration (SSA) to charge their credit card on a recurring monthly basis by submitting
a completed and signed form SSA-4588 , (You Can
Make Your Payment by Credit Card).
For one-time payments, the debtor contact representatives (DCRs) in the Program Service
Center (PSC) of jurisdiction will enter the required information on the webpage and
submit it electronically for processing. For a link to the webpage see GN 02210.156.
For recurring monthly credit card payments, the Mid-Atlantic Processing Service Center
(MATPSC) is responsible for entering the information on the webpage. Recurring monthly
payments require the debtor to sign and date form SSA-4588. Upon request, the DCRs mail the form to debtors and ask that they complete, sign,
and return it in an enclosed MATPSC envelope.
NOTE: MATPSC’s address is:
Social Security Administration
Philadelphia, PA 19122-0430
IMPORTANT: There are six versions of the SSA-4588, one for each PSC; it contains the PSC-specific telephone number and hours of operation
information. See a sample of the form in GN 02210.154. The SSA-4588 is now housed in inForm.
