The SSA-8203-BK is always completed by personal contact (face-to-face or telephone)
interview. Telephone is the preferred method. See exceptions in 5. below.
The SSA-8203-BK is not a self-help form. DO NOT MAIL a blank SSA-8203-BK to a recipient for completion and return. However, if a recipient requests a blank form, do not refuse.
Personal contact interview is still required.
